Diagnosis:
The Plains Leopard Frog is characterized by moist skin, a round snout, an irregular pattern of distinct scattered spots on its back and sides with few or no flecks or network pattern between them, and a raised fold or ridge of skin on each side of the back running from behind the eyes down to the thighs where it is broken, the posterior portion being set inward toward the middle of the back. The head, body, and limbs are gray or tan with dark gray, brown, or black spots. The spots are sometimes narrowly edged with black. The hind limbs are darkly banded. The raised fold or ridge on each side of the back is light yellow, gray, or whitish. The belly is white, although the area around the groin may be yellowish. Adult females grow larger than males.
Adults are normally 51-95 mm (2-3¾ inches) in snout-vent length. The largest Kansas specimen, is a sex undetermined (FHSM 3131), from Montgomery County with a snout-vent length of 107 mm (4¼ inches) that was collected by L. S. Oborny on 15 April 1966. The maximum length throughout the range is 111.1 mm (4­3⁄8 inches) (Conant and Collins, 1998).

Distribution:
Found nearly statewide, except the extreme southeastern corner.

Natural History:
This frog is found in nearly every aquatic situation, both permanent and temporary, and wanders great distances from water. After summer rains, adults and young engage in a mass exodus from breeding sites, traveling great distances in every direction; there is evidently no home range or territory.
The Plains Leopard Frog is active from February to October within a wide range of temperatures. Like the Northern Cricket Frog and the Western Chorus Frog, it is sometimes active during the winter. Fitch (1956) found this species wandering in his upland wooded study area within an air temperature range of 77-86°F. This amphibian digs into the mud and leaves of lake and stream bottoms during winter months and remains inactive until temperatures are favorable. Heinrich and Kaufman (1985) found several dead examples of this frog on the Konza Prairie on 16 March; apparently the victims had been active and were frozen to death by a rapid change in the weather.
This frog normally begins breeding as early as February and may continue into summer. The call consists of 2-4 repeated guttural notes chuuuck-chuuuck-chuuuck. Caldwell and Glass (1977) found evidence of fall breeding by this frog in Woodson County. Fitch (1958) recorded successive mass migrations of newly metamorphosed young and adults leaving an upland pond in northeastern Kansas but speculated that many perish when they fail to find suitable aquatic habitat during their wanderings.
During the breeding season, males chorus, attract females, and mount them by clasping the females behind their front limbs. Each female may lay up to 6,500 eggs in small masses attached to stems and plants just below the water's surface. The eggs hatch within three weeks, and the tadpoles may metamorphose during the summ er, or overwinter and transform the following spring. They breed in late spring in ponds and ditches where they deposit a large mass of eggs that float near the surface.
These frogs will forage far from water during the summer in search of invertebrate food.
The Plains Leopard Frog feeds primarily on nonaquatic insects. The stomachs of several Plains Leopard Frog examined by Hartman (1906) contained beetles, grasshoppers, crickets, a worm, water-snails, myriapods, and one solpugid.
Shirer and Fitch (1970) reported predation on the Plains Leopard Frog in Kansas by raccoons, opossums, and skunks.
Kirk (2001) listed the Plains Leopard Frog as common at Schermerhorn Park. At one point it was assumed that the Plains Leopard Frog occurred on the Ozark Plateau, however, since then all available specimens have been examined and determined to be Southern Leopard Frog (Lithobates sphenocephalus).

Occurrence Activity:
Number of Unique Obervations (=days): 250; Range: 02 Jan to 13 Dec
Chorusing:

Audio recording by Keith Coleman.

Chorusing Phenology: The black outlined dots denote the Julian date (day of the year; 1 January = 1 to 31 December = 365) an observation was made. The thin red line depicts the range of dates between the beginning of the first, and end of the fourth quartile (excluding outliers; Tukey method). The thick light blue bar represents the second and third quartile (interquartile range; the middle 50% of all observations). Only one observation per Julian date is included in the graphs; so a date with multiple observations carries the same weight as a date with only one observation. The vertical bars correspond to the 12 months of the year; January through December.
Number of Unique Obervations: 640; Range: 09 Mar to 31 Aug; Interquartile range: 14 Apr to 13 Jun;

Remarks:
First reported in Kansas by Hallowell (1857) based on specimen procured by William A. Hammond, then the doctor stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas. At the time of this report, Kansas territory spread west to the continental divide. The earliest existing specimen (USNM 45922) was collected at Onaga, Pottawatomie County, in 1891 (collector unknown).
Largely confined to aquatic areas, but may travel significant distances over land during the mid-summer.
Burt (1935) reported that Mr. Cornelius Rogers found a Plain-bellied Watersnake (Nerodia erythrogaster) feeding on Plains Leopard Frogs (Rana blairi) in Barber County, Kansas, on 7 April 1934.
The Plains Leopard Frog is known to hybridize with the Southern Leopard Frog (Lithobates sphenocephalus) in southeastern Kansas, particularly in Woodson County (Collins 1993). This hybridization normally occurs at or near impoundments of human construction where environmental barriers are eliminated which would normally separate the two species (Collins 1993).

Only larvae of the putative Ambystoma tigrinum were mentioned (however larger specimens were said to have contained eggs). It is possible that the larvae were the more common Ambystoma texanum.

Accounts on forty species known from the vicinity of Manhattan, Riley County, Kansas. There have been several scientific names changes since publication, which is understandable... however, some usages cannot be explained by subsequent taxonomic reappraisals(e.g.  Gastrophryne carolinensis for Gastrophryne olivacea). The writer lists Eumeces (=Plestiodon) obsoletus and E. guttulatus yet correctly reasoning that the latter is the young of the former. Within the account of Tantilla gracilis (a common form) the writer mentions that T. nigriceps was reported from Riley County by Branson (1904) but that the specimens at Kansas State were absent at the time of publication. The Prairie Rattlesnake (Crotalus viridis) was first reported from Riley County by Branson (1904) and is reported by the writer based on a specimen in the museum at Kansas State University by Professor E. A. Popenoe. The Prairie Rattlesnake is not currently native to Riley County, and closest reliable localities are 150 to the west.

Brumwell plotted this locality, which leads me to believe that the 1936 would have been the earliest date this manuscript could have been written.

A summary of known information on the amphibian, reptile, and fish faunas of the Arkansas River above Great Bend. The report details associated field activities for procuring fish, however no new surveys for amphibians and reptiles were undertaken. Information on herps from Finney County was provided by Michael Rush (FHSU) and thus made available before the publication of his thesis (Rush, 1981). The western Arkansas River drainage had experienced little attention by herpetologists before this study, and the species accounts reflect that paucity of data. Additionally, the report omits several older records (e.g. for Anaxyrus debilisThamnophis cyrtopsis, and Lampropeltis calligaster) from the westernmost reaches of the Arkansas River drainage in Kansas.
