Leptodactylus melanonotus — Sabinal Frog
Some other names for this species:
Black-backed Frog, Black Jungle Frog, Fringe-toed Foam Frog, Mexican River Frog
On our first night of road-cruising near Álamos, we drove past a swampy area abuzz with the calls of these squat, jumpy frogs. This particular one had hopped out onto the road, and was caught by Andrew DuBois for photos the next day.
