MN has 14 different species of frogs and toads. While all frogs and toads share similar characteristics, each species has a unique appearance and mating call.
According to the MN Department of Natural Resouces (MNDNR), "Their [frogs and toads] presence is an indication that we are doing a good job of preserving wetland habitat and water quality. Conversely, when toads and frogs disappear, it could mean the ecosystems that sustain them are ailing."
