Frogs in Colorado

Despite the extreme weather conditions of the state, Colorado is home to multiple frog species that have adapted well to the climate. For instance, boreal toads and wood frogs will try to find abandoned burrows to hibernate in the winter, while leopard frogs will dig a hole at the bottom of a lake and spend the winter there.
