    Default Identification?

    I picked this little guy up from my job at a supermarket. I live in Western New York in the US. I don't see it being a local species because we have had several feet of snow for quite a while now and I feel like he would be frozen solid if he just hopped inside. My best guess is that he came in with a flower shipment and still haven't figured out where it came from. Any help identifying would be appreciated. Name:  IMG_20150208_233440474.jpg

    Looks like a western chorus frog, or at least its a member of the Pseudacris genus.

    Probably a young cuban tree frog. They come in on a lot of floral shipments around here.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Google had several images on both the Cuban tree frog and the western chorus frog. I'm fairly sure it's a Cuban tree frog because of the pattern and the large toe pads that you can't really see in the pictures.

    I've kept Western Chorus frogs, and it's definitely not one of those. It looks like a Cuban to me. The flower shipment most likely came from South Florida.
