  • Widdle froggie

    This guy/gal was hanging out on my car yesterday. With all the rain, it's no wonder. I have no idea what kind it is so anyone have any guesses?




    It was the day for herps...we saw two of these frogs, two black racers and a box turtle, all within 150 feet of my front door.

    A couple minutes of Googling, and my guess is the Common Grey Tree Frog. Very cool, I never see stuff like that in my yard.

      I'm not sure if he's stoned, angry, or just disappointed in you.

        He's cool looking. I've definitely found similar looking toads in the backyard, I think that was when I was in western mass though. I don't see nearly as many reptiles or amphibians now that I live in the city. Just tons of squirrels, chipmunks and for some reason turkeys, lol. Although apparently there was a moose wandering around the Belmont suburbs a week ago. All the time I spend camping in Maine and NH and I see nothing, but the people in the suburbs get to see a freaking moose, lol.

            Actually, it's a Cope's Gray Treefrog. I wasn't sure which one it was but a noted zoologist told me it's a Cope's, not the Common.

              That's what I was guessing from the pictures, but then the description says they're visually indistinguishable so I took a guess. Fun stuff.

                I found a pickerel frog in my raised-bed "tomato forest" last evening. Beautiful & SO fast...when I reached his direction, he jumped & totally disappeared. (great 'camo'!) I'm concerned that he was able to climb
                into this area but probably cannot climb out, so I hope to find him again so I can put him some place safer (with a body of water). We recently had about 3" of rain, but he'll be cooked if he stays...& he's so pretty!
