Hanging Around

Grabbed a photo of this little traveller on the shed door when I went to take out the recycling this morning.

I believe it’s a male Wood Frog. Little dude was only about 3-4 cm long… about half the length of my thumb. It hopped away while I taking the photo; they have long legs with little webbing between their toes. Crazy thing: some “survive for weeks with an incredible two-thirds of their body water completely frozen—to the point where they are essentially solid frogsicles.” – http://voices.nationalgeographic.com/?p=105296

More about them and how you can report sightings to the BC Frogwatch program: http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/…/public…/factsheets/frogs/wood.htm
