When new species are discovered it is usually in association to a remote and undeveloped ecosystem. But, a new species of leopard frog is breaking that stereotype. The new frog species was discovered in NYC, with the center of its range being identified as Yankee Stadium!
Unlike other leopard frogs whose calls are described as a “long snore” or “rapid chuckle,” this new species has a “short, repetitive croak.”
I’m sure with baseball season ahead of us, if you listen carefully you will hear their unique croaks cheering on their home team.
