Rio Grande Leopard Frogs are water frogs that are native to Texas, New Mexico, and Mexico but were introduced to Arizona and Southern California. They out-compete the native Lowland Leopard Frogs and are continuing expanding their range thru the canal systems of the southwest. According to Jennings and Fuller in their 2004 report on the distribution of leopard frogs in California "Rio Grande leopard frogs seem to have been accidentally introduced into the lower Colorado River near Yuma, Arizona, via one or more fish plants from either Texas or New Mexico between 1965 and 1971 (Platz et al. 1990).

Adults are 2 1/4 - 4 1/2 inches long from snout to vent and are active year-round but will bury themselves in times of cold weather and drought.
