Named for its body color, the bronze frog is a secretive species, hiding under vegetation near ponds, creeks and rivers. It may be difficult to find until warm, humid evenings when its mating call is heard. Their diet includes small frogs, worms, insects, and other small invertebrates. Birds, fish, and small carnivores (meat eaters) prey on the bronze frog. It reaches sexual maturity in the first full summer after metamorphosis. Breeding season begins in early spring and lasts through the summer. Females lay 2,000 to 4,000 eggs in small masses attached to underwater vegetation. Eggs are 1.5 mm when laid, but grow to 6 mm as cells divide. Incubation is 1 to 2 weeks. Tadpoles are green with small, dark spots. They grow 1 to 1.5 inches (28 to 33 mm) before they metamorphose (change from tadpoles to frogs). Bronze frogs live 7 to 10 years. Bronze frogs are nocturnal and solitary. They remain under cover, in logs and crevices, most of the time. Male bronze frogs court females with a distinct call. Researchers agree that the love song of the bronze frog sounds like someone plucking a loose banjo string. In fact, another common name for the bronze frog is the "banjo frog." This sculpture was cast using the "Lost Wax Method" and is green and gold  patina with hints of gold highlights and is mounted on a black marble base. This sculpture is signed by the artist Milo.
