Pine Woods Treefrog

Hyla femoralis

Description:

The pine woods treefrog is similar in appearance to the squirrel treefrog, except that it has a row of small orange, yellow, or even whitish spots on the rear of the thigh that cannot be seen when the frog is at rest. This frog's toes are only slightly webbed, and it often breeds in temporary wetlands, including roadside ditches. The sporadic chattering call of the pine woods treefrog gives it the nickname "Morse-code frog." It can be heard from April to October.

Habitat:

Flatwoods
