Grass frogs, also called northern leopard frogs, range naturally throughout most of North America, except for the Pacific coast. They tend to stay near ponds or marshes, but can be found wandering into well-covered grasslands to search for food. Grass frogs are typically greenish-black in color with an array of irregularly-shaped dark spots on their backs and legs. The belly tends to be pearly-white in color and lacks spots. They average 3–5 inches, nose to rump, with females being larger than males. They enjoy feeding on all types of small invertebrates with the occasional vertebrate: beetles, ants, flies, worms, smaller frogs, birds and even garter snakes. An average life span is 2– 4 years in the wild; however, on occasion they can survive 8 or 9 years.
