    Default Gray Tree Frog (Hyla versicolor)

    This is a male Gray Tree Frog (Hyla versicolor) photographed calling in East Texas on Saturday night. Identified by call and distribution map. He was about 1.5 meters up in a dead tree in a shallow pond.

    Thanks guys. I actually took him home (he jumped onto my shirt so how could I say no). I also took home a female I found. They are living together in a small exo-terra.

    Wow! Beautiful pics of your frogs NAT. They look nice and healthy. I bet they have an appetite to match.

    The yellow leg bands are very interesting to me. While I know both species have the yellow on the legs, is it common for versicolor bands to wrap all the way around like that? (I never get to see them except in your folks pictures, nothing but chrysoscelis here.)

    Yes, all Grays (Hyla chrysoscelis and Hyla versicolor) have the yellow/orange on their legs, males and females. A little trivia fact about the species: chrysoscelis from Greek means golden legs. The yellow bands do not usually come the full way around the legs, the color on mine, and any I've seen are on the underside and usually not visible if they are resting or have their legs tucked up. The male in the first photo is puffed up chirping, so you can see a bit of yellow where he is partly standing up there. Science's best guess on the colors, is to deter/confuse predators with a flash of bright color when they have to jump away or evade predators.
