This frog measures from 2 3/8 to 3 1/2 inches (6-9 cm.) long, but can grow as large as 4 1/4 inches. The basic body color is green to brown.

Look for an upper lip that is lighter and brighter green than the head. This frog is easy to confuse with the mink frog, which appears later in the season. The green frog is

found over the eastern half of the state in rivers, streams, lakes, ponds, and wetlands with permanent water and emergent vegetation.
