Frog Blob

28 Jun 2012
Sunny 28°C / 82°F

I love the primordial look of this fellow but he is a bit of a blob and I never see him move when I’m up close. I could ‘coax’ him but feel badly bothering him when he poses so cooperatively.

Can anyone identify?

No idea who he might be, but quite a handsome fellow (in an amphibian sort of way).

I have never seen a frog like this. May it be a grey tree frog (Hyla versicolor)? I’ve seen some pics and read that it is native of the eastern US and Canada.

@Cristina, I was thinking gray too.
@RoseMarieGardener – Does he have yellow underneath his back legs? Now I’m on a mission. This is one of my favorite things to do. Identification.

Some of my more favorite childhood memories was closing my eyes and listening to the tree frogs at night. It’s a free concert and nothing relaxes me faster.

Yes!…..last night I was told it was a tree frog, cristina. Fhaith, I saw no color on the frog; I did not handle him for want of not wanting to disturb so I didn’t see his belly this time. I was told they make almost a ‘quacking’ sound….unlike peepers which in my neck of the woods, is our Spring lullaby. Thanks for all your effort here, Fhaith.
And I agree, sheepandwool….he has amphibious charm.
I also think he looks like a lichen that grows on one of my garden rocks.

Whatever he is, he has really good camouflage!

Especially on my old deck handrail.
