Frogs at Cold Creek

Cold Creek Conservation Area is home to many species of frogs that are native to Ontario. They can be seen along the Wetlands Trail and by the pond bathing in the sunlight or taking a dip in the wet areas throughout the site. Frogs are amphibians that live both in and out of the water, and have a diet that consists of insects, snails and worms. Their long back legs and webbed feet help them with swimming and jumping long distances. Baby frogs are called tadpoles and can be seen wiggling through the water shortly after spawning season.
