Four-lined Tree Frog

Polypedates leucomystax

Description:

large, handsize

Habitat:

outdoor washroom, pine forest, 1000m, found in Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, the Philippines, Singapore, North America, Thailand, Vietnam, and possibly Bhutan.

Notes:

I was going to brush my teeth one night while camping in Phu Hin Rong Kla national park. The forest around the washroom was all pine, the ground thick with pine needles. This frog hopped out of the pine needles and jumped right onto the washroom wall, right in front me! It then jumped vertically up the wall. It was so cool to watch. It jumped up to top of the wall and then jumped into the black bin half full of water in the second photo.

I agree that this does look similar to the Four-lined Tree Frog.

Tree frogs are so variable depending on temperature, light, mood... Have you looked at the four-lined tree frog?
