Frogs of New Hampshire

Bull FrogThere are 10 species of frogs that are native to New Hampshire. Some of these species, such as the American toad and green frog, are common and widespread across the state. Other species, like Fowler’s toad, are rare and listed as a species of special concern.


Three of the 10 species (Fowler’s toad, mink frog, and northern leopard frog) were identified as species in greatest need of conservation in the New Hampshire Wildlife Action Plan. The distribution of these species is not completely understood. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department maintains a database of all reptile and amphibian reports through its Reptile and Amphibian Reporting Program (RAARP). The first step to reporting a sighting is accurately identifying the species. Information and photographs were compiled for all of New Hampshire’s native frogs to aid in this identification process.
