Treefrog approximately 1..25 inches long. Skin gray with green cast, granular. Large toe pads. Light spot below eye. Inner thigh bright yellow/orange color (pic #3).
Found on window frame near water containers where they will breed.
Frogs breed in small water containers. Begin to gather at the beginning of the breeding season and give soft, low calls to signal their presence. Breeding calls by males are loud, shrill trills. Hyla chrysoscelis is morphologically indistinguishable from H. versicolor, the Gray Treefrog. H. chrysoscelis is diploid (23 genes) and H. versicolor is tetraploid (46 genes). H. chrysoscelis has a faster trill than H. versicolor. Hyla versicolor does not occur in this part of Georgia.
