Gray Treefrog (Hyla Versicolor)
This Gray Treefrog (Hyla versicolor) was crawling up the face of a rock next to a nearby pond so he could get into a good spot to look for a girlfriend.
According to the Virginia Herpetological Society website, Hyla is Greek for “belonging to the woods” & versicolor is Latin for varied color.
They’re very cute little frogs at about 1.5-2” (3-5 cm). I’m looking forward to them making their appearance again once the temperatures are a bit warmer here.
