Green Treefrog

According to “The Amphibians and Reptiles of Missouri,” the Green Treefrog (Hyla cinerea) doesn’t occur in Carter County. Supposedly, other than an introduced population in Camden County, it’s limited to the southeast lowlands. My three year old niece Lauren would beg to differ since she found one today.

Of course I’ve never met a frog that read a field guide and it is just that, a guide. It’s about 30 or 40 miles from here to the edge of the Ozarks and the lowlands, so this little guy isn’t that far from where you’d expect him.
