Cajun Chorus Frog

Pseudacris fouquettei


Cajun chorus frogs are native a large area of the southeastern US and are found in the southwest half of the Mississippi, and southern Louisiana. They are small frogs with similar brown patterns of most chorus frogs. Often tan to brown with three rows of dark lines (occasionally broken) and potential faint triangular mark on head (Peterson et al., 2016). Its call sounds like that of a metallic comb being pulled along a finger.
