Striped Chorus Frog

View Larger
Not all frogs breed during the warmer months. From November through March, you may hear upland chorus frogs trying to attract mates. Their call sounds like a fingernail repeatedly running across the teeth of a comb.
Despite the loud noise it makes, locating this tiny, well-camouflaged amphibian is difficult.  Upland chorus frogs only reach æ to 1 1/2 inches in length. They are brown to gray in color, sometimes with a pinkish tinge.
Although patterns vary greatly from striped to spotted, upland chorus frogs always have a light line along the upper lip and a dark stripe extending from snout to groin and passing through the eye.   
WILD Facts is a regular feature written by Linda May, a wildlife interpretive specialist with the Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division.
