Leopard-like spots cover the backs of the green Northern leopard frogs giving them their name. Two distinct ridges run from the eyes to the entire length of their backs. They are an abundant species found in ponds, swamps and marshes of forested and urban areas. They eat anything like insects, frogs, birds and garter snakes that can fit into their mouths.
