Pacific Chorus Frog

The Pacific chorus frog is the most commonly heard frog on the West Coast. The color of the individual can vary. They are most often a green or a gray, but may also be brown or black.

The tips of the fingers and toes have sticky circular discs called “toe-pads” that adhere well to smooth surfaces. The pads allow frogs to climb easily and cling to branches, twigs, and grass.  Adult frogs feed on beetles, flies, ants, and spiders.

Pacific Chorus Frog

The voice of this frog is known around the world – the "ribbit" that Hollywood uses in all of its films as the "standard" frog call is actually the call of the Pacific  chorus frog.
