photographing and learning about wildlife
One cold morning we found this treefrog on an uncarved pumpkin on the front porch. The squash held the heat from the previous day pretty well and must've been an appealing sleep spot.
Green treefrogs occur in a wide variety of habitats, ranging from pine savannas to urban backyards. They are found primarily in the Coastal Plain, although they may be introduced into other parts of the state by hitchhiking on garden materials. Treefrogs are nocturnal and spend the daylight hours hiding under leaves, bark or logs-- or on pumpkins.
We have also seen these frogs around our porch light eating the moths and insects that gather.
