Here's a good picture I took a while ago of my two frogs, Gnag the Nameless (Left) and Bumpy Digtoad (Right). Bumpy's really been getting her coloration recently, so she looks a lot greener than she does in this photo. I took this picture while they were hunting, or attempting to. Gnag apparently can't find his second cricket, for some mysterious reason

Who identified them as Green frogs? Based on your picture I do not think they have been identified correctly.


If a pet store says it, it must be true right?

Nope.

I would google Rana Clamitans, it looks nothing like your frogs.

Yes, I am rather concerned. They are one of these frogs

http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/wld/frogwatch/whoswho/key .htm

I am a tad concerned, but judging by their croaking, they are probably Rana Clamitans. Oh, and I forgot to mention, if they are Green frogs, they are Northern Green frogs.

I have been trying to identify these frogs for quite a while... Rana Clamitans seemed the closest answer due to their noises, my location (BC), and also the coloration, though I fear I am incorrect. And to answer what you say, K412, I'm a teenager, if you are wondering. And why would I not believe you? That's making a bit of prejudice statement. If you require it, I can make a complete description of the pair of them, their actions, their behavior, and such.

on the Dichotomous key look to 8b. The fact they have the dorsolateral fold starting at the eye and going around the tympanic membrane is the easiest ID method. Rana clamitans dorsolateral fold goes down the length of the body and is easy to discern in juvies as well.

Well, I can see the dorselateral fold around the eye, and a faint fold going down the back on Gnag and Bumpy as well. Could this mean they are simply young frogs?

A green would not have the fold around the eye.. I am sorry but they are both bullfrogs. I've spent many seasons doing herp surveys and am very confident in that id.

Green


Bullfrog

Well, that is a shocking blow, but I can get a bigger tank, and I have now decided where I can place it. Also, I will begin research onto how to care for American Bullfrogs, and I will change their environment if needed. Will I have to feed the frogs mice eventually? And lastly, if need be, I will release or euthanize them if necessary.
And thank you. Although it will mean more work, at least I will not be misguided.
