Pine Barrens Tree Frog

Hyla andersonii


This species was the holy grail of North American amphibians for me, and I was ecstatic to finally find him :) The back is solid green with a dark stripe from the nose to the front leg. The inner thighs are spotted orange, and this guy has a black throat because he is a male. I can't get over how beautiful this frog his, and had a blast photographing him!


Found calling in a downed tree next to a pond in sandhills habitat.
