Northern Leopard Frog (Lithobates pipiens)
Plains Leopard Frog (Lithobates blairi)
Southern Leopard Frog (Lithobates sphenocephalus)
The species of Leopard Frogs are relatively new to Animal Wonders. They came to us during or after their tadpole metamorphosis from various school projects. Having been raised in a classroom with many curious eyes gazing on them, their chances to survive in the wild is slim and now they are a part of our amphibian programs. If you are a teacher workng with this project (often sold through various science education outlets) and need a place for your frog or tadpole after the project or school year ends, please contact us and we'll be glad to help you out.
The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer, but when the last individual of a race of living things breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again. - William Beebe, 1906
We depend on our programs & donations to help fund the care and housing for our animals, most of which are either rescues or surrenders. We seem to be always taking in new animals that need a home or different situation, their care adds up. If you would like to help support Animal Wonders, it would be greatly appreciated. We are always in need of donations, caging material, lumber, crates, aquariums, straw, & newspapers.
