    I caught this little guy/girl cruising across our shop parking lot. Located in east central illinois, habitat would be small creak and woodlands on the back of our shop property.
    Not sure what species it is but maybe someone on here does, or can help.

    Just before I came across that snake I posted, I also saw this little frog hopping along. Also located in east central illinois, habitat would be small creak and woodlands on the back of our shop property.


    Not sure of his species either. But he looked cool.
    Very odd that I saw all that wild life in the parking lot today.
    It did rain quite heavily last night could that be why they are out and about

    Ok so your snake is a Dekay's brownsnake. Quite common thoughout the eastern US and southern parts of Eastern Canada, all the way south to Honduras. Usually found in woodland areas, usually near water bodies. It's a colubrid, and it's main source of prey are worms, slugs and snails.

    No, doesn't have the shape of a toad, lacks the tympanic gland behind the eye.

    Ah found it. It's a colour variety of the northern cricket frog, what threw me off is that they are generally green. However the bumpy skin, back pattern indicate species. I looked up colour variants of the species and found this exact frog
