Frogs Might Be Coming with Christmas Trees

The state department of Fish and Game is asking Alaskans to be on the look out for an invasive species of frog that has been found on imported Christmas Trees. Two Pacific Chorus Frogs have been found so far from trees that came from Washington state. The department isn’t too worried about the species establishing itself in Alaska, but is concerned the frogs may be carrying pathogens that could infect native frogs.
