Kouchibouguac National Park of Canada

Closeup of a Mink Frog
The Mink Frog (Rana septentrionalis) is one of the many amphibian species that occur in Kouchibouguac. It is able to protect itself in part from predators by releasing a strong, "skunky" smell when in danger, which is also of the smell that most other mustelids such as minks give off, hence its name.
