    We were fixing to leave for church today when our son brought this big frog by to show it to us.It looks like a Bullfrog but their is no ponds or water near his home.His dog found it in his yard today.It was barking at it when his wife found it.He put it in the creek here at my home.If you know this frog let us know?

    That is a lepard frog....and the biggest one I've ever seen. He may have been traveling between water holes to mate. Lepard frogs can stay out of the water longer than Bull frogs and Green frogs. There are several different species including Eastern, Western, Rio Grande, Southern, and a tree Lepard. Good Pictures.

    It's definitely not a Leopard frog, although the markings are somewhat similar.

    Good looking frog. He looks healthy. Doesnt really look like a bull frog but it might be cause of its size. Color looks more like what I call a tree frog but they are very small frogs and nowhere near that size. Glad you let him go in the creek. One day I want to build a small pond with little rock water fall, like you get at Lowe's etc. bury some fenceing bout a foot in ground and foot high around it. Put our turtle in it and that frog would be cool to have in it.

    I also love frog legs. As kids we would catch em, fry em up. Now I go to restaurants an pig out on em.

    That is a bullfrog. Good eats. Go to your nearest water with a feed sack and bring home the bacon.
    I should have said the nearest water to where it was caught.

    Flathead Willie is right, That is indeed a leopard frog!
    The biggest flipping leopard frog I have ever seen!!!

    We use them for bait around here and it is a guaranteed fish every time!
    and QUICK to boot

    Ummm I am not sure how that one got so damn big, but you might throw him on a hook and maybe we will see one of those 1,000lb fish that we have all heard about!!!

    HAHAHA

    Let me know what you planned to do with it!
    They are hard to come around here in Iowa! If there is one that size, keep looking around for a whole in the ground... and watch it there will be hundreds of them... USE THEM AS BAIT!!!

    Cheers and good luck
