The Journey of a Western Chorus Frog to Achieve Love.
One day, on a warm spring day, an egg was laid, which would one day grow up into an adult Pseudacris triseriata, known as the Western Chorus Frog. This wonderful and vibrant egg hatched 18 days later. The wind and radiating sunlight encouraged the egg to develop into a tadpole, over the course of three months. The determined tadpole moved swiftly in the rippling waters of the marsh, where it digested elusive algae and diatoms to survive. Over time, it metamorphosed into a froglet. The stronger froglet with increased hunting skills, went out and devoured ignorant springtails, in order to gain the nutrition and energy it required to one day reach the goal of being a prideful, adult Western Chorus Frog. Many seasons had passed our determined froglet, where it grew and became a powerful adult.
The Western Chorus Frog hibernated and sheltered through a cold and freezing winter. A year had past and our frog had developed distinct and differentiating characteristics. Withstanding, climatic changes and ever so competition, our frog still was a small, but more aggressive and confident frog. The frog developed a very granular texture, which made it stand out from other species, in the area. One fascinating development our frog developed was the acquisition of three unique and fine dark lines on its back. There was one goal that eluded our protagonist, even with all its feats and accomplishments, it lacked the romance and attention of a female frog, known as Ms. Secret. Still, our friend had to develop a routine of getting around the marsh.
The next morning, the sun was vibrant, and many different species were moving around the marsh. These different species have been a thorn, in the side, of our hero. They posture and move swiftly around the marsh, making it very difficult to acquire food and nutrients to survive during the day, for the hero. One of the predators, the protagonist, must compete with is a hognose snake. This snake moves quickly and strikes when the prey is unexpecting it and lose awareness of the environment. In the air, lurks vicious and opportunistic birds, which swoop down and will eat the frog. The protagonist must be alert. One more predator gives the frog an issue as he tries to search out his food. The big and aggressive racoons surveying the marsh and rooming around, in search of energy, from the environment. Our protagonist determines it is unnecessary and too risky to move about during the day, so he submerses himself in water and waits for the sun to set.
The protagonist patiently waits for his prey to move about the area. The moon is shining down on the marsh, and the opportunity presents itself. The predators still lurk around the area and our frog decides to make calculated movements. The frog uses his color to blend into the environment when he detects prey. This allows him to then quickly jump up and down to the invertebrates he is seeking, in the near distance. Crawling and moving around the edge of the marshland are small and elusive spiders and snails. The frog quickly jumps behind the tiny spiders and begins to digest them, in a methodical fashion. The frog still needing more energy to survive surveys the area and swiftly moves behind a group of snails. These snails not paying attention to the frog, continue to move using their mucous supported foot. The frog holds each individual snail using its upper jaw and swallows them entirely. A surprising and unexpected event approaches the frog.
On different leaves, appears a group of female frogs. They are gazing around the marsh and realize that they are being courted by several male frogs. They ultimately have to each pick one and lay their eggs, to further continue the lineage of the Western Chorus Frog line. The protagonist attempts to seek out the female frog, standing on the leaf to his left. This frog is immediately interested in the calling of the male frog that beats our protagonist to the spot and gives the more expressive call, in her mind. The two frogs, holding each other, splash into the water, where the girl lays her egg. Not being selected by the female frog is a challenge not only to our hero, but the other male Western Chorus Frogs, who scavenge the area and are in search of the ability to reproduce and mate with the opposite gender.
This event is not what was desired, but the protagonist, continues to jump around the marsh and spots out another female frog. This time there again are so many male frogs, which have already taken out their elongated and distinct yellow vocal sacs, that our hero has to concede and find a leaf, where a female has not being attempted to be courted with. Several hours passed and our hero moves on to the next morning. Numerous male and female frogs continued to mate and outcompete each other. Luckily, for the protagonist, there was one female frog, which he would meet down the road. Our female frog went through a lot to get to this point. Her name is Ms. Secret.
Ms. Secret grew up in the marshes, as a small, but determined frog. One day she was jumping around and noticed a vicious and dangerous snake, moving around the marsh, in a sinusoidal way. The snake quickly homed in on her and attempted to try to grasp her and devour her alive. A distraction occurred out of the blue. Suddenly, there was a group of raccoons scavenging the area. This scared the snake so much, that he hissed and quickly moved away from the scene. Then, the raccoons tried chasing after the snake. This allowed Ms. Secret to swift and carefully jump away, from the scene, and submerse herself in the water. The raccoons raced and caught up with the snake. The snake continued hissing, but to no effect. Determine, the group of raccoons went on top of the snake. They used their claws and methodically ate the snake alive. More twists and turned occurred for Ms. Secret.
On a windy and cloudy afternoon, Ms. Secret was hungry and had not eaten for hours. The previous night, she could not find any food to eat and had to tolerate the night. Snails, spiders, and other insects were just eaten, one by one, by the other frogs. If she did not eat for another day, she was risking her life. Luckily, for her she had come across a hoard of grasshoppers. The grasshoppers moving about the area were making a violin like sound. She quietly jumped behind a young grasshopper, who was sensing out his environment. This grasshopper forgot to realize there was a frog lurking in the distance. Its sensory organs made a fundamental mistake that it was slowly held and swallowed away. Ms. Secret pounded on several other young grasshoppers and acquired the nutrients and energy, she needed to survive. One more fascinating event occurred in the lead up to meeting the protagonist, for Ms. Secret.
On a humid and tiring night, Ms. Secret was approached by thousands of male frogs. She was uninterested, in many of them. One frog felt she was impressed and tried to jump on her, but she swiftly, jumped to the other side. Another frog jumped right next to her and made his call, but she submersed herself in water, and that frog had to move on to the next girl. Another interesting encounter that night was when a very old male frog, who had never mated before, extended his yellow sac on a cliff above her. This was swiftly ignored, and Ms. Secret jumped away and never showed up, in front of the male frogs, for weeks. Though, one morning she decided she was interested in mating with one special frog.
Ms. Secret was jumping around the marsh and suddenly felt the urge to look at our protagonist, who was just simply resting and surveying the area. The other male frogs were out hunting and resting. Our protagonist sensed Ms. Secret trying to examine his call and mating behaviors. Our hero went up to her and showed his long and unique black lines, on his back. He also expressed his yellow and very elongated vocal sac to her, six times. He jumped twenty times to excite her. One party pooper randomly appeared. He was desperate to get Ms. Secret’s attention. Our protagonist refused to let him get an opportunity, he croaked him away, with an elegant and postured croak. These behaviors left a positive impression upon Ms. Secret. The two frogs gazed at each other for five minutes. Suddenly, then the protagonist used the pads on his limbs to get on top of Ms. Secret, locking up her back legs. They end up in the water. Ms. Secret starts to unexpectedly lay eggs. The protagonist and Ms. Secret line up their cloaca’s, their reproductive organs. The eggs are fertilized and forever Ms. Secret and the protagonist our bonded and they continue the distinguished and fascinating lineage of the Western Chorus Frogs.
