Are you wondering what animals are talking in the night and what they are saying? It must be an alligator…or is it a pig frog? Could that be a quacking duck? Maybe a scolding squirrel? Or are they just frogs chatting?
Join us to visually learn about our common Florida frogs and toads as well as learning some of their calls. Next, grab one of our Frog Callers and join our froggy jamboree. That way, the next night you hear them talking, you can join their conversation too.
