Northern Spring Peeper Frog

Pseudacris crucifer

Description:

Reddish tan with nice design markings. Color can change according to surroundings. Only 1 inch. (2.54 cm) See photo #3 for exact measurement.

Habitat:

Near woodlands and meadow. This amphibian was right outside my front door possibly attracted to the porch lights. Abundant throughout Pennsylvania.

Notes:

I carry my ruler around with me some of the time. I got lazy with the research. See reference for the most detailed information on this spot. Thanks!

I was very excited. I thought it was a moth. Yes, that tiny. One inch! I have never seen one before. It was a little cold out. 54 degrees. Maybe that is why it was still for some photos, but very dark out.
