The northern leopard frog must live in areas that have fresh water to enable them to complete their life cycle.  For more information on this, venture to the Reproduction/Life Cycle page.  Some fresh water environments include lakes, ponds, beaver ponds, reservoirs, marshes, springs, bogs, flood plains, canals, and slow streams such as creeks.    The picture below shows the distribution of the habitat of the northern leopard frog, which mainly lives in the southern part of Canada and the northern area of the United States.  In the United States the frog habitat consists of 19 states, which are Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.   

Some other organisms that can be found living in the same habitat include:  

Mergus merganser                                     Luxilus cornutus                                     Adiantum pedatum                                     Typha latifolia                                             Polyodon spathula                                         Nepa cinerea
