Rocky Mountain Amphibian Project

A WYOMING BIODIVERSITY CITIZEN SCIENCE INITIATIVE PROJECT


Amphibian Calls

As Spring nears It's time to consider brushing up on your frog calls, either for personal fun or so that you can help with the toad tracker amphibian survey. There's nothing like being able to pick out specific species of frogs by their calls. It's like learning the notes of music.

CALLS OF WYOMING'S FROGS AND TOADS

Click on the images below to hear the call of each species. 

If you hear one of these guys when you're on a hike, submit your observation here!
