Here’s a Lowland Leopard Frog (Rana yavapaiensis) from Santa Cruz County. I’ve seen this species before, but did not realize that it was not the very similar-looking Chiricuahua Leopard Frog until I had returned home and found my half-ass photos weren’t good enough to salvage … not that this one is spectacular or anything. I like frogs.
Here’s some habitat in the area. This is typical for this part of Santa Cruz County. People that visit for the first time are usually very surprised by how green and lush it is 3-4 miles from the Mexican border.
