CHARACTERISTICS: As in all treefrogs, this species has sucking

discs on the tips of toes. This species is skinny with short hind legs and

is able to change color to some degree. The color is variable from green

to green brown and gray with a star shaped mark on the back and a dark

bordered light spot below the eye. This species breeds from March to

June. This species seems to call from a lower height than Hyla versicolor.

It can be distinguished by the higher frequency of trill.

 

DISTRIBUTION: They are found in wooded stretches along creeks,

rivers and pools.

 

FOODS: These frogs forage for insects among trees and shrubs and on
the ground.
