Look who I found in the creek, last week, behind my house!
Pacific Chorus Frog, thanks to a facebook identification request and response and double-check-verification-reassurance, (yes i do know what I’m talking about) from Leslie Anthony, (the man behind @pembyboa) and authenticated by Veronica Woodruff, who supplied the additional photos below… I present you the Pseudacris regilla, the Pacific chorus frog (née tree frog).
The colouring can change – brown and/or green. But they’re identifiable by the mask around the eyes, rugose (not smooth) skin, and the expanded tips of their digits – suction cups.
Curious? Check this great post from Veronica Woodruff, singing the praises of the songful little frogger.
Hey there little fella. Happy to see you.
