Mystery Frog


I could look it up in a guide but I’m more interested in what you have to say.

  1. Has to be a tree frog! I used to catch them all the time when I was little. Lately however they don’t seem to be as common as they used to be. 😦

    propably Rana esculenta but kill me: I know almost nothing about frogs, they are rather difficult to identify

  3. Looks like a variation of Hyla regilla but I don’t know where you live! It’s a beautiful colour.

    Looks almost exactly the same as the frogs we have here in Panoche, only the back seems more green.

    It’s a Pacific treefrog, aka chorus frog. I’ve seen them on Mt. Tam and in Death Valley. They really get around.

  7. “They” have changed the name from Pacific Chorus Frog to Sierran Chorus Frog. Whoever decides these things has divided what I always called Pacific Tree Frogs into three subspecies: Pacific Chorus Frog (north of here), Sierran Chorus Frog, and I think Sonoran Chorus Frog (south). The places to learn the best stuff is californiaherps.com and inaturalist.org! A frog by any other name would be as cute!
