Pacific chorus frogs sing for soundtracks

Frogs are well known for their vocal capabilities. The Pacific chorus frog, also called the Pacific tree frog, lives along the western American continent from Canada through Mexico. Like other frogs, these animals sing to attract mates, but they also sing about the weather and to mark their territory. Their croaking sounds and songs are often featured in movies.
