insectsi am going to get tadpoles from a Christmas gift and i need to now what it eats and this is what: they eat crickets, fish, snakes (i no!), even small birds!!!!!!! this is what northern leopard frogs eat!insects and small vertebrates.
They are found in permanent ponds, swamps, marshes and slow moving streams throughout forest, open and urban areas. They noramlly inhabit water bodies with abundant aquatic vegetation. They are well adapted to cold and can be found above 3,000 meters (9,800 ft) asl. Males make a short snore like cal…l from water during spring and summer. Up to 6,500 eggs are laid in water, and tadpoles complete development within the breeding pond. Tadpoles are light brown with black spots, and development takes 70-110 days, depending on conditions. Metamorph frogs are 2-3 centimeters (0.75-1.25 in) and resemble the adult. This species was once quite common through parts of western Canada until declines started occurring during the 1970s. The decline is thought to have been caused by pollution drift from the United States falling in the form of acid rain. Many populations of Northern Leopard Frogs have not yet recovered from these declines.

A leopard seal played a part in Happy Feet but it was more viscious then they really are in the movie.
The leopard seal is the second largest species of seal in theAntarctic. It is most common in the southern hemishpere along thecoast of Antarctica and on most sub-antarctic islands, but can alsobe found on the coast of Australia, Tasmania, South Africa, NewZealand, Lord Howe Island, Terra del Fuego, …the Cook Islands, andthe Atlantic coast of South America. It can live twenty-six years,possibly more. Orcas and large sharks are the only naturalpredators of leopard seals. The leopard seal is large and muscular, with a dark grey back andlight grey on its stomach. Its throat is whitish with the blackspots that give the seal its common name. Females are generallyslightly larger than the males on average. The bulls are generally2.5- 3.2m (8.2-10.5 ft) and weigh between 200 and 460 kg (440 and1,000 lb) while cows are between 2.4 and 3.4m (7.9 and 11.2 ft) inlength and weigh between 225 and 600kg (500 and 1,300 lb). TheLeopard Seal is highly evolved for its role as apex predator.Although it is a true seal and swims with its hind limbs, it haspower. (MORE)
If you want to know what one looks like males are dark and have spots the females are bright I am not sure they have spots though.
The leopard frog likes to live near marshes and ponds. They can befound living all over the northern part of the United States.

Well if your leopard frog croaks well its a male. Sorry but i only know that much.
I wouldn't give inchworms to leopard frogs. Leopard frogs need mealworms, waxworms, earthworms, or crickets. Inchworms aren't required to be fed to leopard frogs. So, I wouldn't take a chance.. If your leopard frog accidentally ate an inchworm, I think it may not hurt them. Although, you may want t…o ask a vet, or the pet store you bought the leopard frog from for a firm and final answer.. If you found your leopard frog in a pond or creek, find out which local pet store sells leopard frogs and ask. (MORE)
yes actually they prefer to be on land .you can find them in golf courses.
\nNo. One of them will eat the other. Leopard geckos are picky about who is with them. They have been said to kill one another so don't try it. If the frog is small the leopard gecko will take it as an insect and eat it.
leopard frogs can grow either to be 2 or 3 inches, which can be the regular size of betta fish.
It's tongue is about one third of the animals length, is attachedat the front in most of them and frogs can vary in length from ahalf an inch to one foot. some female bullfrogs carry their mateson their backs for long distances
The southern leopard frog is eaten by a great variety of predators such as: raccoons,Virginia opossums, large fish, snakes, turtles, large frogs, and herons.
Tadpoles usually eat algae, while adults eat almost anything moving! Bugs, Smaller frogs, small tadpoles and other reptiles and amphibians that are small enough to eat without causing impaction. Earthworms are a common meal, aswellas backswimmers and other water insects.
Yes. Frogs hear using big round ears on the sides of their head. What you can see is called the tympanum. It is the outside covering that protects the external ear opening.
Purchase or assemble a small aquarium, of at least 5 gallons. Get a small, preferably internal filter. Dechlornate and age (24 hours at least) the water, and fill the tank about 1/2 -2/3 full of water, preferably using some water from the pond/lake where the tadpole came from. Feed the tadpole spiru…lina flake food that can be found at pet stores. You can find all the materials you need at www.bigalsonline.com Keep it in a medium sized tank, a goldfish tank would do fine. You do not have to have a filter like fish do, but clean the water whenever it gets murky and smelly. The water MUST be dechlorinated. If not, the chlorine particles can kill your tadpole. Squirt in some dechlorinating droplets and wait 24 hours (1 day). If you have no dechlorinating droplets you can just leave the water out in the light and wait 5 days. DO NOT keep your tadpole in the pond water you got it from if the water is dirty or murky. If the pond is clean, you should STILL dechlorinate it, just in case. If you got it from a pond, take some of the pond weed too. It'll help oxygenate the water. Tadpoles eat all sorts of things: egg yolk, meat, scrambled eggs, fish food, lettuce, spinach, dog food, and each other! Don't overfeed or the water will get dirty and you'll have to clean it more often. When the tadpole is starting to get legs, put a big rock in the tank (the tip should be above the water), and a long, clean stick. This will give the tadpole something to climb on when they become froglets. (MORE)
There are several different species, Rana pipiens is best known. Leopard frogs have dark, round blotches on ther backs that resemble the skin pattern of e leopard.
because it likes to be petted but it died because it harms its skin :(
A leopard frog's physical adaptive are their feets. They help to jump high and far.
Leopard frogs have smaller bones protruding from the vertebrae, much like a fish. It is more of a matter of opinion... Some people would say yes... I would say no.
They are not poisonous. But you may see the Northern Leopard frogs in old fields, meadows, grassy-sedge woods roads and grassy roadside ditches. Juveniles are often seen resting on sphagnum moss at the edge of roadside ponds.
if you see one, you may not want to have it as a pet because they need large space, a meadow to lay their eggs in and a lake with small aquatic bugs in it.
Small beetles, ants, flies, worms, smaller frogs, including their own species.. (This frog is very small, sometimes smaller than a human fingernail.)
In the wild, a leopard gecko would not encounter a frog, therefore it should not be fed frogs in captivity. As a hobbyist, we are trying to replicate their natural environment. In most cases, feeders must be no larger than the space between the animals eyes and most frogs are much larger than that.
The leopard frog's scientific name is Rana Pipiens. The leopard frog's scientific name is Rana pipiens.
All amphibians have skin glands that exude toxic substances that repel predators. Leopard frogs have less than most. It would only be dangerous to a human who was particularly sensitive (allergic) or who ate a lot of them whole and raw...not terribly likely.
Same as most other frogs: - Females are larger than males of the same age. - Males' ears (round spots behind the eyes) are bigger than theireyes, females' are the same size. - Males' thumbs are bigger than their other digits, females' areabout the same size. - Males croak to attract females, females… very rarely make noise. - Mature males have dark patches on their throats from croaking,females' throats stay white.

I did and they were fine. If the Leopard frog is very large and the tree frog is very small you have the chance of losing your tree frog.
Leopard frogs may live up to 9 years in the wild, althoughvery few leopard frogs will live for this long. Most mortalityoccurs as a tadpole or newly transformed froglet, when as many as95% will die.
There are many subspecies of leopard frog. Most are doing well, andthere is no reason for concern for this frog.
The Amur leopard, Panthera Pardus Orientalis, is the rarest big cat in the world and yet is still a relatively unknown species of leopard outside of its homeland in Russia. Also known as the Far Eastern leopard the approximate population stands at about 35 individuals remaining in the wild. These le…opards now only exist in the southern most tip of the Russian Far East along the borders with China in the Khasan Region of Primorsky Krai. With its long winter coat the Amur leopard is well adapted to the harsh climate of the Amur-Ussuri region. The hairs of its summer coat are 2.5 cm long whereas in the winter they grow to 7 cm long when it also lightens to a pale cream colour. Its fur has larger and more widely spaced rosettes than other leopards, with thick dark borders. It also has longer legs, probably an adaptation for walking through snow. The male Amur leopard weighs between 32-48 kg, with exceptionally large males up to 60-75 kg. Females are smaller than the males weighing between 25-43 kg. The Amur leopard has been a protected species in Russia since 1956, but still there is a problem with poaching. Amur Leopards tend to avoid living or hunting too close to tiger territory to avoid direct competition for prey. They normally hunt at night using the silent stalk and ambush technique, one that is also used by the tiger. During the attack phase the leopard may reach speeds of up to 35 miles per hour but this is sustainable only for a very short time. The main prey species of the Amur leopard are roe deer, red deer, musk deer, sika deer, wild boar, hares and badgers. Leopards are adapted for their carnivorous diet. They have large, powerful jaws and long pointed canine teeth to help them grab and hold their prey. The premolars in the back of their mouth have surfaces specially designed for shearing and chewing meat and are referred to as 'carnassial' teeth. They also have sharp, pointed papillae on their tongue to help them remove meat from bones. The Amur leopard in captivity may live for 20 years or more while in the wild they are believed to survive for anything up to 12 years. (MORE)
well, one amazing fact about leopard gecko's is that they are very cool reptiles and they can stick out their tongue to catch their pray like any type of insects. Also they can hide very well in grass, almost as invisible like camouflaging, to sneak up to the pray and catch it before it runs off. …. (MORE)
Becuase Northern Leopard Frogs are an amphibian and live in swamps they should drink water.
Aquatic frogs such as the leopard frog (Rana pipiens) and American bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana) typically hibernate underwater. A common misconception is that they spend the winter the way aquatic turtles do, dug into the mud at the bottom of a pond or stream. In fact, hibernating frogs would suff…ocate if they dug into the mud for an extended period of time. A hibernating turtle's metabolism slows down so drastically that it can get by on the mud's meager oxygen supply. Hibernating aquatic frogs, however, must be near oxygen-rich water and spend a good portion of the winter just lying on top of the mud or only partially buried. They may even slowly swim around from time to time. (MORE)
Leopard Frogs (also known as common frogs or meadow frogs) can be found in damp environments, in temperate parts of North America.
As of June 14, 2011, the Clouded Leopard (Neofelis nebulosa) as well as the Sunda Clouded Leopard (Neofelis diardi ) are BOTH listed as 'Vulnerable with a decreasing population trend', according to the IUCN Red list of threatened species. Primarily nocturnal and largely arboreal , they… are difficult to spot in their natural habitat. Their young are born in litters of two to four -blind and helpless. The species is threatened by loss of habitat through deforestation. Only seven Clouded Leopards have ever been radio-collared for territorial movement monitoring activities. Their coats have a distinctive and beautiful pattern. (MORE)
Cause for it being endangered The main cause of it being endangered is people hunting for its fur. Hunting is now banned in many countries, and to make sure wild populations are being kept safe, captive breeding programs have been developed for some island populations. Fairly successful in the w…ild because of their ability to adapt, leopard cats are, however, hunted for the fur trade, and in some areas are taken for food. Japan is the major cat fur consumer in Asia, and leopard cat skins are their first choice, importing as many as 50,000 skins per year. Since 1993, the government has allotted no export permits, but there were still 80,000 to 150,000 skins exported to Russia. *The Asian Leopard Cat's Scientific name is prionailurus bengalensis *A baby Cat is called a kitten, a female Cat is called a queen and a male Cat is called a tom *Asian Leopard Cats can be kept as pets Diet The Asian Leopard Cat's diet includes rodents, small birds, amphibians, fish, insects, reptiles, eggs and small mammals including small deer. Occasionally they also feed on fallen bats and swifts near caves. The Cat- being a nocturnal creature usually hunts at night and hunts alone. They also hunt both on the ground and in the trees.

No. This is a myth, started with toads and their bumpy exteriors and has become popular enough to enter modern usage for all frogs and toads. Warts will not be caused by handling toads or frogs of any kind. Do wash your hands, afterwards, however, as some diseases can be spread.
Yes, they are amphibious. That means that they need to be near water to survive.
The clouded leopard is an endangered cat they are beautiful and graceful. They can live up to 21 years. They weigh about 35 to 50 pounds. Clouded leopards eat varied prey, from birds to monkeys to wild pigs. They are gentle and playful and i think they will be cool pets. I learned that fem…ales have litters from 2-5 cubs. Clouded leopards typically weigh about 28 pounds and are about 36 inches long. (not including their tail, which is usually 30 inches long.) (MORE)
Anything with a backbone is a vertebrate. So a leopard frog falls under that category.
No. They are vertebrates, but Leopard frogs are ectothermic, notendothermic. All frogs are ectothermic, which is commonly referredto as 'cold-blooded'. Frogs are amphibians, and all amphibians areectothermic, as are fish and reptiles. Their body temperature isdependent on external environmental cond…itions. (MORE)
A bunch of aliens came and abducted the leopards and frogs from the north and they combined them and thats how they were created and they dropped them On Mt.Everest and thats where you can find them. On the very tip of Mt. Everest.
Snakes and turtles are the biggies. Also includes some species of fish, mammals like skunks and raccoons, and some birds.
If you are determined and are prepared to spend the money then you could open a wee care centre and teach people about them. But if that is not an option then just keep them at your house in your backyard. and take them to shows and things like that to show people and talk to people about them. And …if that isn't an option still then i don't know. Good luck BTW i'm only 11 (MORE)
A leopard frog (sometimes called a meadow frog ) isnot something you play with (as you might with a dog) - so I wouldsay no.
