Chiricahua Leopard Frogs Battle Non-native Predators, and We’re Helping

The Chiricahua leopard frog is a threatened species found in streams, ciénegas, cattle ponds and other wetlands in the high valleys and mountains of southeastern Arizona and southwestern New Mexico, and  eastern Sonora and western Chihuahua, Mexico.

The biggest threat to this frog right now is getting eaten by non-native, introduced bullfrogs, fish and crayfish.

As more southern Arizonans build homes closer to natural wetlands and mountain canyons, these non-native pests are escaping from garden ponds and golf course lakes and spreading to wild areas. Once these animals are established, it is really difficult and expensive to remove them. To combat them, biologists with our Arizona Field Office are working with numerous partners to inform and educate the public about these non-native species and how to create habitat that protects the native frog.

In addition, we are working with a wide variety of private and public partners and stakeholders to help the Chiricahua leopard frog recover. For example, huge strides have been made through captive head starting and breeding programs, including the Phoenix Zoo, which has been hatching wild egg masses and rearing tadpoles for release since 1995.

Grey's Question

I have a question, but to preface it, this is not meant to be Callie vs Arizona, it’s just something I’m curious about thinking back to 11x05.

I know some people feel Callie should not bring up the cheating since she decided to forgive Arizona and try to make their marriage work, but wouldn’t that hold for the pregnancy when Arizona came back from Africa?

11x05 showed she’s still resentful about it, but once she agreed to be in and said, to paraphrase, they love each other and none of the rest of it matters, shouldn’t she have let the resentment go at that point? After all, she decided to be in and try to make it work.
