Gray Tree Frog

Hyla versicolor

Description:

Gray Tree Frogs can change colors and can be a mixture of colors as well. They can go from a near white color to an almost black color, depending on their surroundings. They are very small in size ranging from: 1.5 to 2 in (3.8 to 5.1 cm) They have very big toe pads that allow them to climb almost anything. The last photo of this series shows the size relationship to U.S Nickel

Habitat:

These tree frogs live in primarily wooded areas. They spend most of their time living in the tree tops.

Notes:

This spotting was made with my two Grandchildren (ages 7 and 2). We went out looking for wildlife in my yard. Which is sometimes referred to as a jungle. I am training both them to love wildlife and to not be afraid of some of the bugs and other unusual things that Grandpa finds for them to learn about. THE LAST PHOTO SHOWS THE SIZE OF THIS FROG NEXT TO A U.S. NICKEL
