    This frog has taken up residence in my Dixie Lace water tray. When I add water every morning, this little guy (about the size of a dime) pops his head up for a breath of air.
    The suction like toes lead me to believe it is some type of tree frog but the others I see hanging on the side of my house are a very light tan.

    Can anyone ID this guy?

    He is obviously well fed.

    I'm I going blind? I don't see toe pads :P
    I can tell you this- it's not a green/gray/squirrel/pine barrens tree frog... nor a cricket frog... which are pretty much the only tree frogs I know [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Looks to be in the Hyla genus. Ie american treefrogs. I can see some diminished toepads from that picture. Perhaps one from above would help... Looks like a barking treefrog from what I can see. Correct me if I'm way wrong, even though I've been herping since the age of 4. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    me too... but in mexico and I didn't know the names b/c it's hard to find field guides there and it's REALLY hard to find people that tell you the truth... WAY too many myths... here too!
    the most annoying time was when I was telling this stupid guy [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] that he was wrong (in a nice way of course!) about thinking that a brown snake was a copperhead... well, he completely ignored me!!!!!!!

    PAK.. LMFAO

    For a long time, toads have seemed to see my bigger CP pots as guest rooms.. almost all the time, there's at least one plump little toad in either the Judith Hindle pot or the S. minor pot. Right now there's one little dark one in the minor pot. He leaves, then comes back later on, then leaves for a while, then comes back a few hours later. It fascinates me that they have the capacity to remember exactly where to come back to, exactly how to get all the way back to the top shelf, exactly what pot to get into, and exactly how to get into it, no matter whether the greenhouse is rolled out to the end of the patio in the sun or up against the house for night, the toad always knows exactly where to come back to every day.

    *creepy voice*

    They're getting smaaaaaaaaarterrrrrrrrrrrr....
