And Now I KnowPosted: October 13, 2016
I found a couple of frogs in the yard that I could not identify. The internet doesn’t always provide the information you are seeking, so the next best source is an actual person. I found one at the Houston Museum of Natural Science that was able to identify my frogs.
This cutie is a Gray Tree Frog . It will spend most of its time in trees and doesn’t move around much during the day. It also has a distinctive call and I do remember hearing a louder peeper at night.
This frog is a Southern Leopard Frog. I am told they are mostly aquatic, but they seem to be in my yard quite often and there are no ponds nearby. Maybe they enjoy the sprinkler system. I recently saw a rather large one hopping in one of the beds. So, now I know the names of my backyard visitors.
