Weekly Puzzler Answer #56

peep-5850This HUGE sound is made from a very TINY frog, a spring peeper, one of our earliest to start calling in the spring. Their latin name is pseudacris crucifer. The first part means “false locust” because many people confuse their calls with those of insects. The second part, crucifer, is from the cross or X on their backs. This frog is only 3/4 – 1 3/8th inch long! To read more about this amazing frog, Click HERE.
