Gray Tree Frog

Hyla versicolor

Description:

The name versicolor is appropriate. Most of the ones I see are green like the first 3 pictures, but some are brown or gray like the last picture.

Well I will be starting my research on amphibians next week, but once I am done with school for the semester I will be living at my study site all summer. I have pit fall traps I will be installing, and will use minnow traps. Cover boards won't work because of the incredible amount of fire ants, but I will be out every night searching and listening for calls. Hopefully it rains on a regular basis so I will find tons of amphibians! There is lots of swampy/marshy areas the tree frogs love, sadly I have never seen a gray tree frog. Just heard them. But once I get out there I should get them a lot, of course with the hundreds of green tree frogs I'll find daily :)

One good way to find these and other frogs is to go out on a rainy night on a road near a wetland where frogs and salamanders are crossing. The group of young ones were on a leaf right next to a marsh along a dirt road in a local National Wildlife Refuge.

I hope to find lots of young tree frogs this season, I have found a gray tree frog that still had it's tail, but I only knew what it was because my teacher told me. I'd like to find some this size though :)

The first picture was a bunch of immature frogs together on a leaf. They started to go when I got close enough to photograph them.
