Trying to identify a frog or toad?

Keep in mind that some species are found statewide, and others are found only in certain regions of the state. When you think you have identified a frog or toad, be sure to read about that species' RANGE (where it is found) to confirm that the species lives in the area of the state where you saw the frog in question. Ranges are included in the descriptions.
