Wood Frog  (Rana sylvatica)

This sleek looking frog is grey, brown or red in base color, often with dark spots on the sides and back. A dark racoon-like face mask is conspicuous in all specimens. This is the smallest true frog on PEI, rarely exceeding 6 cm.

 

Woodfrogs are very hardy and have the furthest northern range of any other species of amphibian or reptile. Locally, they are quite terrestrial and will inhibit most types of moist woods.
Breeding occurs in early spring meltwater, usually when snow is still present. Their diet consists of invertebrates.
