Bog Frogs have rough dark green to brown backs, black mottled undersides, yellow throats, and may have light spots on the lower jaw. A light brown line

runs along the lateral fold and does not reach the groin area. Habitat: Clear, shallow, non-stagnant, acidic (pH 4.1 - 5.5) seeps and seepage streams arising

from sandy uplands, plus associated boggy overflow areas, often with sphagnum moss and black titi or white cedar. The Florida Bog Frog was discovered in 1982 and occupies only three counties in northwest Florida, with its geographic range occurring almost exclusively on Eglin Air Force Base. This limited distribution has led to the listing of the Florida Bog Frog as a species of special concern in Florida.
