Pinewoods Treefrog (Hyla femoralis)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Pinewoods Treefrog (Hyla femoralis)

easily identified if you have it “in hand” by the yellow dots along the thigh. They are quite cooperative. This guy let me photograph is dots, then I put him back on the plant. He quickly jumped back on my hand…I think he liked me.

Shown on Florida Native Plant INKBERRY; GALLBERRY (Ilex glabra)
