Is the most widely spread “true frog” of North America. Found in almost any body of water, they are aggressive predators, consuming everything from plants to small mammals. It is said that if the Bullfrog can shove it in its mouth… it will be eaten! Starting as eggs they go through metamorphosis in 3 months to 3 years depending on climate. Northern specimens taking longer than those in warm southern states. A frog jumping contest favorite, these amphibians can leap as far as 6 feet in a single bound!
