A Gray Treefrog

Post by beetleman »

Gee, it looks too hot out there in the sun...I think I will say right here in the shade 8) (he looks happy). A Gray Treefrog...Hyla versicolor or H. chrysoscelis. Not sure which, only by their voices can you tell them apart in the field. he had some grass debris wedged in between his thigh :wink: Posted this one in the old forums last year (what a chunky one :shock: )

Lovely photos! Thanks for showing, Doug. I like your tree frogs over there with that nicely marbled colour. Our one and only European tree frog (H. arborea) is mostly green and appears not as warty as yours.

That is one thing I love the boards here for, that one can just look at wildlife in foreign places in a way one would encounter it oneself, if one was there. :smt023

Best wishes,

I knew a girl that looked like this. Had to drive a stick in one of her hind legs to keep her from hopping away too. Is that a stick in that things leg for real, nah couldn't be. You ain't being mean to toads are you Doug? :? Poor thing. :( Nice shots by the way though. Captured the skin textures really well. :D
