What's Going On?
The Frog Tracker lets
you listen to the calls of different North American frogs. All of
the sounds you hear are "sound loops" -- in nature, the
calls of individual frogs have more range and variance.
Frogs have been making
their calls for hundreds of millions of years. Most frog calls are
used to attract a mate during springtime. However, some frogs will
call year round, whether they are mating or not. Each species of
frog has its own unique call. To learn more about frog calls, visit
