New Leopard Frog Species Is Discovered in N.Y.C. - NYTimes.com
- A new species of leopard frog has been discovered in New York City. It's a surprising find since most new species are found in remote areas and not in one of the most populated centers in the world.
There are more than a dozen leopard frogs, ranging from Canada to Central America. Medium in size, with dark spots on a tan, olive or green background, they gravitate toward grassy meadows and breed in ponds or pools. The researchers say that the new frog species was confused for a long time with the southern leopard frog, which it closely resembles.
