There might be good reason our little, green, web-footed friends are croaking today. Today, the North American Bullfrog is honored as the official state amphibian. Governor Matt lunt signs legislation designating the giants of the frog world as such. The Missouri Conservation Department’s Kevin Lohraff is glad to see the bullfrog get the designation. Lohraff says awareness of bullfrogs also means awareness for other animals such as salamanders, toads, and other animals that make ponds and marshes their homes. He points out that if you build a habitat conducive to bullfrogs, many other species benefit as well.
