Northern Red-legged Frog

Rana aurora aurora

Smaller than the Californian red-legged frog, this decorated critter has a brownish gray coloration with fancy red legs and abdomen. It is hunted as a delicacy for its extraordinary legs. Introduced bull frogs, crayfish, sunfish, and largemouth bass compete for habitat and resources shared with the Red-legged frog, in turn greatly reducing their survival.
