Tiny Frog

P6180055One of the twins found this tiny frog in the grass near the blue berry bushes.P6180059 They held on to him while I ran to get the camera.  I was excited as I haven’t seen a frog like this before.  I wonder if it is a tree frog?  I’m not sure what type frog it is,  but I will look it up and see if I can identify it.  It is, as Sophia says, “sooo cute”.  I’ve seen little toads,  but never a frog this small.  And, honestly, it is cute. 
P6180063See how tiny he is!  I found out he is the tiniest frog in North America…what ja’ know!
OK.  The best I can tell by comparing pictures, is this is a Little Grass Frog.    Davidson's Herpetology Dept. has a   wonderful site for information, photos and the recorded calls of North Carolina’s amphibians and reptiles .  I tried to put the link here but wasn't able to do it.  Wait a minute...let me try something... Check it out....     There, maybe that has it.
