Southern Leopard Frogs are raised and eaten by humans. When you see "frog legs" on a menu, it is most likely a Southern Leopard Frog. These frogs are also used in large amounts in biology classes for dissecting. Scientists have become concerned about too many frogs being used for this purpose. Southern Leopard Frogs are also very important in the wild. They eat huge amounts of pesky and dangerous insects, such as mosquitos.
