light to dark brown or gray, with a dark inverted triangle on the
head. During the breeding season some individuals will have fluorescent
green color on the back. A dark stripe on the inner thigh is
indicative of Acris species. Skin is very warty.
Habitat: Can be found
anywhere shallow water is present, whether permanent or seasonal.
Behavior: Cricket frogs are
members of the Treefrog family, although they do not climb. They are
quick jumpers. A calling chorus sounds like pebbles being clicked
