Green Frog

The Green Frog, Rana clamitans melanota, is a common resident of shallow fresh water springs, streams, ponds and lakes with much vegetation. Green Frogs consume anything that can fit in their mouth like crickets, flies, fish, crayfish, shrimp, grasshoppers, smaller frogs, tadpoles, small snakes, birds, mollusks, moths, and their own cast skin. Tadpoles consume algae and water plants. Green Frogs are found throughout the eastern half of the United States except the lower half of Florida.  I found this one while in a kayak at a small pond in the Mad Horse Creek Wildlife Management Area in New Jersey.
