Holy Crap A Gray Tree Frog On Our Deck AND A Freaked Out Boy

Teach is a sun worshiper, he loves heading to the deck for a tan. Two weeks ago, he grabbed his tanning chaise and found something inside it. Goddess came running in saying, look what we found, do you know what kind it is? After a quick once over I told her it was a tree frog. She was confused because she has only seen green tree frogs. After a quick Google search with her and the frog on my lap, it was confirmed. We had a gray tree frog.

Look how cool that is....the most clingy frog ever. I really wish we could have kept it but I would have had to invest in things that I have no money for right now.

The kids know or I should say because she is the one who comes home with things. We have "day pets" and that it is for now.


We learned that Gray Tree Frogs are nocturnal and during the day, hide in holes in trees. We also learned that they usually don't descend from the high tree tops unless they are looking to breed. This poor fellow probably was quite busy and never made it back to the tree or jumped onto the deck from a close tree. The deck is a second floor deck and we live near the woods.


See that bright yellow and black? That is their distinguishable marking. 



We think he looks like tree moss, great camouflage.

Check out our video of Goddess and I describing the Tree Frog and Handsome not having any of it. Future blackmail video for sure.

Hey, you and I have the same outdoor rug :)
I love frogs--I have never seen one like him before. Maybe they don't live this far south. Thanks for sharing!

What a cutie! I love them. Ours hang out everywhere. In our mailbox, on walls, in my plants. Last year, I brought the plant in, and one of them ended up climbing the walls inside!
Cheers from Cottage Country Ontario
