Invasive Species - Bullfrog

American Bullfrog (Lithobates catesbeianus)

Bullfrogs, usually green mottled with brown, can grow to over 6 inches in length.

Sold for aquariums, they have also been released into the wild as an edible frog.

In Oregon, they impact water quality and prey upon many native turtles, frogs, fish and snakes.

The bullfrog is native to central and eastern U.S. and southeastern Canada.
