Notes

It had rained approximately 3 inches here in the preceding 48 hours.
Accidentally recorded with parabolic mic.

In this short recording, you hear a single croak of a Gopher Frog. I didn't capture any other recordings of it. I accidentally recorded this while recording Pseudacris fouquettei and didn't notice the croak until after I got home and was playing the recording.

The recording has had extensive filtering and equalization to try and accentuate the Lithobates areolatus croak while removing/reducing the road noise and Pseudacris calls.

They are known from this area.
