Jeff Rice recorded Canyon Tree Frogs and rare Relict Leopard Frogs in the Lake Mead Recreation Area in Arizona for the University of Utah Marriott Library.



GELLERMAN: We leave you this week in a narrow canyon.
In the Lake Mead National Recreation Area in Arizona, Canyon treefrogs bleat loudly on a warm spring evening. And if you listen closely, you might hear the faint chuckling of the relict leopard frog. It’s rare, most of these frogs can be found around Lake Mead.
