An albino wood frog found at the Tamarac National Wildlife Refuge in Rochert, Minn.

The wood frog (Lithobates sylvaticus) can be found throughout much of North America and is known mainly for its capability to freeze and thaw and carry on with its life. It averages about 2 and 2.5 inches in length and eats a range of insects and the tadpoles are known to be cannibalistic.
