They look awfully familiar! Put them in a well lit environment and they'll turn almost white. Good luck with them Justin!

That's what he does. It's hard to shut him up. I doubt they'll breed though because the female is so old.

Where did you get them? I live in Michigan and I heard there were some wild ones, but where to look?

These guys are found high in trees generally close to water. During windy/rainy weather these frogs may be seen much closer to the ground. Your best bet may be to wait until the breeding season and stake out a pond that is bordered/surrounded by woods.

I got these 2 from JohnC (John Clare). He got them from Texas originally, but this species can be found from Texas all the way to MN, etc.

Best of luck!

Any idea if they're versicolor or chrysoscelis? Got a few of these coming out of the water now myself, great frogs

John told me they were H. versicolor. Did you breed them or collect eggs/tads?

Justin's are 100% Hyla versicolor. I collected them in East Texas outside the range of H. chrysoscelis, and the male's call is that of H. versicolor. I've heard both species calling enough to be able to tell the difference most of the time (it's a real challenge).

I found four pairs amplexing in the swimming pool.... rinsed them all off, put one pair in a rain chamber, released the rest, and that was that

In Illinois they are easy to find in the spring/early summer. On rainy nights, from early May through June, they breed in pools. Their call is extremely loud. Our neighbor's pool last year had ones breeding in it, and you could hear them inside our house, with all the windows closed! Here's a pic I took of one last May at our house.

Thumbs up Re: Gray Treefrog Pics

I used to live on Kaw Lake in Northern Oklahoma, I had one of these living on my porch for a couple of Years...... i ended up capturing him and keeping in a viv. for couple of years....... got hard up and released him.... he went back to his spot on porch, hiding amongst my wifes house plants... cool lil frog...
I have been working on a viv for dart frogs but have been thinking about getting a pair of these instead.. I really liked him except for the fact he was like my step kids up all nite and slept all day...

I live in Northern Minnesota. We have a lot of gray treefrogs. They call a lot in the summer from the trees around my house but don't see them often. I have an enclosed deer stand in my woods with a door taht does not fir snugly. When it rains gray treefrogs often are found on the inside of the door.
