    Wink What Type/Gender is My Little Guy?

    I have a new frog, named Steve. I am really hoping he is a he, and not a she! Also, I would like to know his type/breed/label. He was found in Northern Indiana, August 9th, 2013. Anyways, here are his pictures! Thanks ya'll!

    *tentative* Gray Tree Frog (Hyla versicolor). I don't live in the US so I can't be sure. The little guy looks too young to sex. However, with frogs, males tend to be smaller than females, croak, and develop nuptial pads by their thumbs. Females are generally larger, and are silent.

    If dragons were real I'd totally be in on that...

    Thank you! He isn't a Gray Tree Frog, he doesn't look like any of the pictures.

    Gray Tree Frogs can vary from what Steve looks like to mottled grey-brown colouration. Like this pic: Google Image Result for http://www.daveluzader.com/Wildlife/album/slides/copes%2520grey%2520tree%2520frog.jpg

    As I said, its a tentative guess, but he also doesn't look like any other frogs of Indiana: DNR: Frogs & Toads of Indiana
    Maybe a green tree frog, but they tend to have a bold white/cream lateral stripe.

    Pfft... It would TOTALLY be me to find a new species of frog, or an extinct species, or an intrusive species... Great.

    Check out "Cuban Tree Frog".. they're an invasive species. I don't know their range, but I guess it's a slight possibility... I'm still sticking with my tentative guess of Gray Tree Frog though... mainly because of the range and mottled grey colouration on Steve's feet and legs

    Nope. He could be a Gray Tree Frog, he just doesn't have that white stripe though...

    I'm gonna have to agree, I think he's a grey tree frog, just green. Look at the "tear stain" markings compared to him and the grey tree frog pictures, it's identical.

  10. This member thanks badkelpie for this post:

    Ah, the tear stains. I didn't see those in the first pic. Even more conclusive evidence then

    He looks like a Pine Woods Tree Frog.

    Steve was released back in to the wild today. He is in the single Tree in my front yard, and he blends in very well! Here is my last picture of Steve;

    I'm not sure if the picture posted, I can't tell on my phone.

    He didn't wander far! He was a few feet up, and I managed to snag another pic:

    I'm gonna have to agree with Anna. This frogs skin is to smooth to be a grey tree frog.

    Well considering they are found only a state away I have no doubt that some can make their way into indiana.

    It has orange thighs. That proves its a grey.
