Gray Tree Frog

Hyla versicolor


Colors can vary from gray to green because of their amazing ability to camouflage - they can slowly change color from black to nearly white. The amount of mottling is variable. This frog was approximately an inch long.


Spotted hopping around under a picnic table in the mulch at a playground in a semi-rural neighborhood. There was a swampy area less than 50 feet away from the playground and lots of deciduous trees.

Thanks Rob, I was thinking that as well; but, I'm not sure because it could be Hyla chrysoscelis as well and I can't seem to tell the difference...
