Lithobates heckscheri River Frog
The genus Lithobates was split from Rana by Frost et al in 2006. This has been a controversial change ever since, and many authorities continue to use Rana.

River Frog (Lithobates heckscheri)
I wanted to spend the evening poking along one of the park's lovely boardwalks with my flashlight, looking for nocturnal frogs and snakes. Unfortunately, the park people didn't want me (or anyone else) on the boardwalk after dark: the entrance was now behind a locked gate. So I just patrolled a small shore of a canal for a few minutes instead, and found a couple of these frogs as a consolation prize.
