Green Tree Frog Froglet

Hyla cinerea


Spotting #1000 :) I had really been wanting to find a Tree Frog that had 4 legs and a tail still, and I was walking around in a marsh one day and saw this guy jumping on top of the water so I grabbed him for some photos. Bonus though: he still has his tadpole mouth!


Marsh. He was returned to the water to grow into an adult tree frog after I took photos :) At Gus Engeling WMA.


I personally think frogs are way cooler than people realize. Most of them have a tadpole stage, which they are mostly omnivores during. Then as they metamorphose into adults, not only do they grow legs and lose their tail, but they go from omnivores to carnivores. This requires their digestive system to completely change, which if you know anything about nutrition you know how hard this is!
