Weekly Smile 3/21/22

Happy Spring!
This Sillyfrog thinks Spring is the BEST season. Wood frogs are among my favorite ‘cousins’ and this last weekend there was rain and warmth inspiring a big night of migration for these fascinating creatures.

Wood frogs (above) live on the forest floor and freeze solid during the winter! They can be found as far North as the Arctic Circle. Their window for mating is quite small and can be observed for about a week. This makes their ‘coming out party’ a big event on my calendar!
Salamanders (below) follow a similar pattern that coincides with their amphibian cousins. They don’t make a loud chorus so you may be unaware that they’re around.

I made my own cute informational video several years ago but couldn’t locate it for this post. This video was made 2 years ago not too far from where I live. Listen for the frogs’ noisy celebration of Spring.
I’m stoked for more springtime magic. I’ll keep you posted. ❤

    I did see my first salamander of the year (a tiny red one) about two weeks ago, when it was snowing!

    We hear the frogs when the monsoon starts, usually in June. I live in west coast of South India.
