Hi Landen,

Based on the photo, you observed a Green Frog. While the two species look incredibly similar, Green Frogs have ridges running down the sides of their back known as dorsolateral folds and Bullfrogs do not. We have updated the record for you. Thanks your submitting your observations!


The Michigan Herp Atlas began in 2004 in an effort to collect observational data about Michigan's amphibians and reptiles.

Our goal is to document their distribution and help measure changes or trends in populations.
