Welcome to OhioAmphibians.com!

Your source for information about Ohio's frogs and toads, salamanders and newts, their habitats, the Ohio Frog and Toad Calling Survey, and the Ohio Salamander Monitoring Program, supported by the Ohio Division of Wildlife*.

Ohio is home to as many as 40 amphibian species. (The exact number is debated due to the unisexual Ambystoma salamanders and the potential occurrence of the Southern Leopard Frog). Amphibians are an important part of Ohio's rich natural heritage, and we invite you to explore this site and learn more about these wonderful animals, where they live, and what is being done to make sure they remain part of Ohio's biodiversity for future generations. Enjoy!
