Northern Leopard Frogs were once the most abundant and widespread frog species in North America. They were collected for dissection (10th grade biology, anyone?) and for the food industry. But the species has seen some massive declines since the 1970s. You wouldn’t guess that looking in my yard – if you look close, you’ll see two dozen hopping around at any given time. I enjoyed science class, but it’s a lot more fun to see these guys alive!
