Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Acris gryllus dorsalis
Florida Cricket Frog

Okefenokee Swamp, Georgia
April 21, 2003

There's not much difference between this little frog and the Southern Cricket Frog (gryllus gryllus) - this one has two dark stripes on the rear of the thigh, as opposed to the Southern Cricket's one stripe.  One simply has to catch one to see the difference - not hard on a wet road on a rainy night.

Further documented in my Frogwalkin' herp journal entry.
