Regarding frogs and top SFX libraries

Not sure this is the right place for Sound design/SFX, and it's kind of 2 questions:

(1) I need a fantastic, dry, closeup recording of a classic "ribbit" (from a pacific tree frog, occasionally misattributed to a bullfrog). The ones I'm finding in the usual libraries sound distorted, vintage and/or noisy.

(2) Whenever stuff like this comes up -- about 2x/year -- I always wonder where the pros go for premium sound effects from a searchable library. I go to Hollywood Edge, then pond5, soundsnap, and then i'm to the dregs. No more audiosparx or sounddogs to me.

Any tips very helpful, many thanks in advance!

Have you looked at the Animal Trax AT06 from Hollywood Edge and "Wild world of animals" from Sound Ideas?

Hello,

I might have a frog sound for you. I'll check my archives. I'm fairly sure I have one somewhere in my many 24/96 pond recordings.

Thanks all. Frank, you look like a great resource should this come up again! Hopefully with a decent budget... you def. shouldn't give stuff like that away.

In case helpful to anyone else, Boom Library and Pro Sound Effects are two good resources.
