The Green Frog is not a native species in British Columbia. Natural populations of Green Frogs are found throughout eastern North America. In some areas they are the most common frogs to be
found. Years ago, small populations of Green Frogs were introduced to B.C. in the Lower Mainland and Southern Vancouver Island, possibly through the
pet or fish bait trade. Green frogs are the classic “pond frogs.” They are medium-sized, green or bronze in colour, and have a habit of sitting fairly upright among or on aquatic plants — including, of course, water lily pads.
