FACTS OF INTEREST:
* Leopard frogs are found in the United States and Canada. They belong to the genus Rana, or the "true frogs," which also includes the bullfrogs.
* Leopard frogs can be found almost anywhere that permanent water and land meet. They are the familiar frogs of laboratories and biology books too.
* Though they were once common everywhere, leopard frogs have seriously declined in recent years because of pollution and loss of habitat.
* Because leopard frogs are very sensitive to chemicals, scientists use them as an "indicator species" to show whether the environment is healthy or not.
