In this lake lived a healthy population of frogs, some of the largest from the fossil record of frogs. Eorubeta nevadensis is Nevada’s oldest frog, and its relations to other frogs is complicated. Our team along with researchers from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Sierra College, and ExxonMobil have been working to figure out the interrelationships of these frogs and how so many of them came to be preserved in the deposits of this ancient high elevation lake.
