[SOUND OF TREEFROGS BLEATING]
GELLERMAN: We leave you this week in a narrow canyon.
In the Lake Mead National Recreation Area in Arizona, Canyon treefrogs bleat loudly on a warm spring evening. And if you listen closely, you might hear the faint chuckling of the relict leopard frog. It’s rare, most of these frogs can be found around Lake Mead.
