    Default Frog Identification

    This little frog was found in Phoenix, Arizona. It hitchhiked in a plant I purchased from home depot. The plant came from Georgia. It is about 1 inch big. Can someone tell me what kind of frog this is.
    Thanks

    I think it's some kind of chorus frog, from the pseudacris genus. It reminds me of my own local frogs, the Pacific Chorus frog. I think it may be a Western Chorus frog, but I am not sure. The pattern on the back and location sound right, but the color doesn't quite match.
    I hope this helps. Someone else may have a better idea.

    I was thinking maybe a Bird Voiced Tree Frog

    After looking at a few images, that's a good possibility. The color certainly fits.
    Edit: Looked a little harder, it seems like the bird voices treefrog has a white to light green spot under it's eye, although that may not be present in all specemins, I dont see it on your little friend. It might be visible with a side-view picture. He also seems to have more pattern on his back than a bird-voiced, but I dont know for sure. He's a cute little guy, though. Nice dark shade of green.

    I am leaning more toward the Pacific chorus frog myself- although that species is not native to Phoenix or Georgia. This species is quite variable in pattern and color:
    https://www.google.com/search?q=Paci...wChm8H7itgAuM:
    The three broken lines down the back rule out the Bird voiced treefrog, and are more suggestive of a chorus frog. It would be helpful to see the size of the toe pads, which are much larger on tree frogs.

    He definitely has toepads. The Western Chorus Frog doesn't, but the Pacific does. If he is a Pacific Chorus Frog, he's quite far from home! His underbelly is very healthy looking. A picture in profile in good lighting would be great help, and would help make his eye stripes more visible.

    I'll try to get a profile pic of him/her tomorrow. It likes hiding in dark spots, but for a wild frog in captivity it eats very well (crickets) and dips in it's pool every day. Very cool.
