Sierra Nevada Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Sierra Nevada Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog:

The Sierra Nevada Mountain Yellow-Legged Frog (formerly called the Rana muscosa - Mountain Yellow-legged Frog) is a species of "true" frog, divided into two separate species - the Southern and Northern. At one time these little amphibians were the most common frog found in the Sierra Nevada mountains. But due to a host of environmental pressures these frogs are now found in only about 7% of their original range. Generally only about 1 to 3.5 inches long (4-9 centimeters) they feed primarily on small invertebrates, both aquatic and terrestrial as well as tadpoles. While the frog is now considered endangered and protected in some areas, there is little being done as far as reestablishing them to their original range. It has the odd defense mechanism of smelling like garlic when handled by humans.
