    I captured this on camera no I did not take it out of the wild. The cute little critter was hanging out with me it was on the side of my house while I was sitting on the front porch. Just had to get it on camera. By the way can you tell me what kind of tree frog it is.

    I'm glad you didn't take him out of the wild. He's a really cute little guy -- I love the last picture. :)

    I never take anything out of the wild because it could hurt the gene pool and the animal typically doesn't do well in captivity. I think he is living in my flower bed next to the air conditioning where the condensation drips. There is a lot of moisture and bugs to eat at night when he comes out and a lot of foliage for a safe place to hide. In the pics it looks like he was just waiting to pose for me. I hope it is a male so I can also listen to him vocalize.

    Liz is right. Definitely a gray tree frog, and judging by your location, most likely a Cope's gray tree frog, Hyla chrysoscelis. Nice find :)

    Some more pics of my little friend. These are a little better since I was able to get them in the day light and get closer to the subject.

    Yup, those photos confirm it's a copes gray. Hope he hangs around. :)
