Spring peeper commented on by MikeVanValen New York, USA5 months ago

This is true, technically. Although the status of H. chrysoscelis is poorly understood in New York state, and the current NY herp atlas is recording all gray treefrogs as versicolor until more studies are done.

This is a gray treefrog that has just transformed from a tadpole. Spring peepers are tan/goldish, with an X shaped marking on the back.
