Central American Leopard Frog

Lithobates brownorum
(Sanders, 1973)
Quintana Roo, Mexico. June 26, 2016.

A common frog throughout the Yucatán peninsula, and formerly included in Lithobates berlandieri. This species can get somewhat larger than leopard frogs in the United States; on rainy nights, the young adults spring across the road in a couple jumps, while the really big ploppers are more inclined to just sit on the road, soaking up moisture through their ventral patches.
