Rana clamitans clamitans
Description / Distribution: The Bronze Frog received its name due to the rich bronze back and head. The snout and upper lip may be bright green. The Bronze Frog's camouflage coloration makes it difficult to locate along water bodies in northern Florida.
Reproduction / Habitat: Breeding occurs in late spring and early summer in streams, cypress heads and permanent ponds.
Call: Also known as the banjo frog, its voice mimics that of plucking the strings of a banjo, "blonk-blonk".
