Lowland Leopard Frog (Rana yavapaiensis) In the Sonoran Desert, lowland leopard frogs inhabit places with permanent water such as canyon pools and streams. This aquatic species often jumps into the water to escape capture. They breed year-round, and tadpoles take a year or more to reach adulthood. Lowland leopard frogs are a species of special concern at Saguaro National Park, as prolonged drought has caused pools that once held frogs to go dry.
