Voice: Call is a short hollow-sounding "bark" similar to the sound of a beagle on the trail of a rabbit. Also makes a raspy tree call at dusk before descending to the water. We have heard them from June through August.
Habitat: These frogs breed in a variety of habitats ranging from cypress or sweetgum ponds to flooded cultivated fields.
Range: This frog occurs in four separate regions of the state; the Cumberland Plateau, the Coastal Plain of west Tennessee, the eastern Highland Rim and north central Tennessee (and southern Kentucky.)
