In this edition of A Moment in the Wild, meet one of our early spring breeding species of frogs, the wood frog. This species may vary in color from tan and browns to reds and pinks, but is identifiable by a black mask which runs through the eye to the upper jaw. Wood frogs also have the unique ability to freeze solid, even stopping their heart beat and blood flow during the winter months.

If you have any questions regarding wildlife, trees, forest management, wood products, natural resource planning, or other natural resource topics, feel free to contact us by using our Ask an Expert web page.
