Default Bluish Green Treefrog?

I don't know what's up with this guy, but he looked too interesting not to buy. I've never seen one with this coloration before-what do you guys think?

the side markings are wrong for it to be that and its build is a bit small, I thought it was hyla cinerea.

I think this is a super cool frog! I gave a green tree frog, and he changes color lots, too. He has never turned blue, but he has turned an almost whitish green. I would imagine that this could just be normal.

P.S. Give us an update in a few days and see if he has changed color at all

Good find

Looks like Hyla squirella or cinerea with a color deficiency.
It occurs in the wild as well due to a defect in the yellow pigmentation, some tree frog species that are being captive bred all become more or less blue.
Even the use of some medication may result in a defect, turning green frogs green with yellow spots for example.
However, it;s a nice lookin specimen.

It is Hyla cinerea. It's this color most of the time, though it gets a little darker when stressed, though still kind of a teal color rather than the typical brown of a stressed H. cinerea(see attached pic). I've yet to see it look anywhere close to the typical leaf green coloration of this species. I have a few more pics of it on my camera-if any are worth sharing, I'll upload more.
