The Northern Red-legged Frog is a medium sized brown or reddish frog, with smooth skin marked by small black “freckles.” Their most distinctive trait is the red coloring on the underside of their hind legs. Northern Red-legged Frogs enjoy the cool temperatures of the coastal forests.and make their home in moist forests and wetlands, breeding in shallow ponds or shaded streams. Adult frogs spend much of their time on land, sometimes straying quite a distance from the water if the weather is damp. They can be found under logs and debris.
