This American Bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeianus) came out to say Happy Halloween! American bullfrogs are native to the central and eastern United States but are considered invasive in the western United States. This is largely due to the fact that bullfrogs are aggressive competitors for resources and prey on native frogs.
American bullfrogs are the largest native frog in North American and can grow to be 8 inches long. With a ferocious appetite, bullfrogs are not picky! They will prey on crayfish, snakes, turtles, other frogs, and even small mammals and birds.
