Western Chorus Frog


昨日突然ピョンと飛び出て来たアマガエル、Western Chorus Frogです。日本語名はわかりません。 – This is a Western Chorus Frog which hopped out suddenly yesterday to our house.

こんな砂漠にも生息しているんですね。 – I didn’t know that frogs can live in desert locations like here.

捕まっている黒い管は水やり用のチューブで 10 mm もありません。ということはアマガエル君は 4-5 cm ぐらいでしょうか。 – The black tube that he is holding onto is a part of the garden irrigation system that is less than 10 mm diameter.  So it means that the frog is about 4-5 cm.

ここは玄関前の噴水の横です。つまり、ヒキガエル君たちのテリトリーなんですね。 – It is next to the fountain right outside of the front door.  It means that it’s in the territory of Woodhouse’s Toads.

ヒキガエル君にとって毎晩の水浴びは、すでに日課となりました。噴水を分け合って共存できるんでしょうか。 – It became a daily routine for Mr. Toad to take bathe in the fountain every night.  Can they share the water fountain, and co-exist?
