Northern Leopard Frog Rana pipiens
The northern leopard frog is a slender, medium- sized ranid, sometimes referred to as the “meadow frog ” because of its preference for grassy habitats (Hunter et al. 1999). It is one of about 20 sibling species making up the Rana pipiens complex that ranges over much of North and Central America. Members of the complex, including the northern leopard frog , are commercially collected and shipped worldwide for laboratory use
