American bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana)
I had to look this one up, and was a little surprised that she turned out to be a bullfrog. Not enough meat on this one to bother with gigging for fried frog legs.
No, I don't do that, but my grandfather did. As a kid I thought that eating frog legs was a real treat.
This one is a female; on a male the tympanum (external eardrum) would be much larger than the eye.
I imagine that this gal has no problems with bad breath, living in the ditch amongst the mint.
