Mystery froglets.

Okay, naturalists.  Last weekend Penny and I explored Glacier National Park’s Avalanche Creek area. Well, we would have hiked to the lake but a sign forbid us from taking our loyal emotional support service animal, Gunther.

So we turned around after admiring some towering cedars.  Penny stopped at Avalanche Falls and, as I stumbled up some wooden steps, I spied what looked like a big bug.  Peering closer, I saw a tiny frog or toad, entirely black.  Then another, and another.  Many in all.  I called Penny who ignored me.  I made my voice more imperious and she came and admired the frogs too.  I promised to Google them.  We saw two or three frogs that had gotten flattened, no doubt, by a tourist’s foot.

Black froglet, 1.5 to 2 cm long (head to butt).  No coloration.  Seen on wet wooden stairs of walkway near Avalanche Falls, West side of Glacier.  I suppose they could have been immature colorful frogs.  I’ve been called worse than that, myself.

What kind of frog did we see?  Anyone?
