At the island, he noticed theses new frog species displaying unusual behaviors and peculiar croaks. These frogs had short repetitive croaks instead of the typical long or rapid snore.

“When I first heard these frogs calling, it was so different, I knew something was very off,” says Feinberg. “Their naturally limited range coupled with recent unexplained disappearances from places like Long Island underscores the importance of this discovery and the value that conservation efforts might have in the long-term survival of this urban species.”
