Program:“Becoming a Frog Eavesdropper”

Wondering what animals are talking in the night and what they are saying? Must be an alligator...or is it a pig frog?

Could that be a quacking duck?

Maybe a squirrel scolding? Or are they just frogs chatting?

Join Sensing Nature, biologists Jeanne Murphy & Brian Lane to visually learn some of our common Florida frogs (and toads), as well as learning their calls too. Next, grab one of our Sensing Nature Frog Callers and join our froggy jamboree. That way the next night you hear them talking, you can join in their conversation too.
