Animals Can Endure The Conditions in Alaska 

Alaska’s harsh conditions are not made for all types of animals, so what about amphibians and reptiles? Let’s just say that they are not the biggest fans of this climate, and that’s why Alaska only has two species of frogs living there. There are also two types of turtles and a few salamander species that can endure the extreme weather Alaska can get in most of the state. To be fair, Alaska is not known for its reptiles and amphibians, so they are not talked about as much as, let’s say, orca whales or tuna, or even polar bears.

Alaska is home to the wood frog and the Columbia spotted frog. Nevertheless, two other species were introduced in Alaska but are not native. They are the Pacific tree frog and the red-legged frog. Both love humid climates and can easily adapt to the environment, which is perfect for the place. However, the wood frogs and the Columbia spotted frogs are very interesting species that need some attention. First off, let’s learn more about the wood frog as they are fascinating creatures, and you’ll never believe what they do every year in September.
