Descripción: We report a new record of Lithobates catesbeianus (American bullfrog) from Argentina. L. catesbeianuswas first introduced to San Juan Province 11 years ago in Calingasta Department, where the habitat is pre-cordilleran.The new record is for Zonda Department, San Juan Province, in the Monte desert region. Here, L. catesbeianus usesartificial ponds for reproduction and tadpole development. These ponds receive water from an irrigation system thatconnects the whole agriculture land in the region. The tadpoles use the irrigation canals to move among ponds. Wesuggest that legislation should be established to prevent future invasions and to achieve sustainable management ofthe wild American bullfrog populations in San Juan. Prevention of future invasion and management of establishedpopulations of this species requires the cooperation of numerous stake holders.
