Bullfrog
(Rana catesbeiana)

The bullfrog is a non-native or exotic pet often released into the wild that has wreaked havoc on freshwater ecosystems and decimated the populations of vulnerable wildlife. The bullfrog is a voracious hunter who preys upon native populations of small birds, turtles, snakes, crayfish, native frogs, salamanders and fish. The bullfrog has been introduced into many wetland areas outside its natural range and has out-competed the native species where it has been released.
