Northern Cricket Frog (Acris crepitans crepitans)

Similar to Southern Cricket Frogs, Northern Cricket Frogs differ in having a jagged black line on the back of the thigh, shorter legs, and more extensive hindfoot webbing. They're found throughout central NC but are absent in the western mountains and the eastern coastal plain.
