How far will frogs travel on land, especially during
mating season? I am interested in the movement range's of only those
frogs located in Northern New York. (Bull Frogs, Mink Frogs, Northern
Leopard frogs, Gray tree frogs, spring peepers, and Green Frogs.) I have
been unable to locate this information. Thank you!
I have not been able to find any specific information either. However, frogs
in general do not stray far from their home, probably no more than a few
feet in most cases. However, young frogs may disperse overland to new
habitat, or adults may attempt to go overland to escape drought. I think
travel distance even in these cases would be short, probably less than a
mile, but that is only a guess.
