The pig frog is native to Atlantic and Gulf Coast swamps and marshes and can be found in the southern and coastal counties of Mississippi. Coloration is usually green, with less mottling than bull frogs. They are large, although not usually as large as bull frogs. The call is quite fitting; literally sounding like an oinking pig.
- Green body, oinking call
- Hind foot webbing on longest toe usually to tip of toe (separates from bull frog)
- Some individuals with rusty markings on back
Male will call in late spring and summer with “oink oink oink” like the grunts of a pig
Like bull frogs, may attempt to eat anything it can swallow including crawfish, insects, and fish
