When I dug into the mulch pile today this frog bounded out. I thought it had pale specks, but realised later that’s just mulch. It’s probably a Southern Bell frog .

The back of their thighs and groin area are bright blue to turquoise

That was the giveaway.

Dark frog well hidden by mulch and sticks. Dark frog on the mulch. Dark frog on sticks.
