Green Frog

Rana clamitans

A medium sized frog with a simple greenish coloring. It has a very pronounced tympanum (the circle behind the eye.)
This frog needs a warm body of water and some plants. It also requires humidity, and a small amount of moisture. (Spraying the tank often can accomplish this especially if it is warm like a greenhouse.)
