Northern Leopard Frogs, also called meadow or grass frogs, are bright grass-green with oval black spots. You may see them in old fields, meadows, grassy- sedge woods roads and grassy roadside ditches.

Mink Frogs are generally green to brown, often spotted or mottled. Their preferred habitat is quiet waters with lots of plants like lily pads and pickerel weed.

Bullfrogs are our largest frog. They are found in quiet coves of lakes with lots of vegetation, especially water lilies. Most are green or yellow-green, but sometimes a blue Bullfrog turns up.
