This tree frog is tiny - only about 3 inches in body-length. But he (or she) has the voice of a huge frog. They talk to each other constantly after dark.
Tree frogs are usually found in trees or other high vegetation. They don't normally descend to the ground, except to mate and spawn, though some build foam nests on leaves and rarely leave the trees at all as adults. However, in my area, tho technically tree frogs, live in outside light fixtures, our gutters. This one was in my garage. But my home is surrounded by ponds and lakes.
Tree frogs are usually tiny as their weight has to be carried by the branches and twigs in their habitats. While some reach 4 inches or more, they are usually smaller and more slender than terrestrial frogs. Tree frogs typically have well-developed discs at the finger and toe tips; the fingers and toes themselves, as well as the limbs, tend to be rather small, resulting in a superior grasping ability.
