This week, the question was: What kind of frog is sitting in this pine tree?
This is a Cope’s grey treefrog. I found this little guy while walking through the woods, scoping out turkey hunting spots. This species spends most of the year high in the trees, so finding it down low is likely a sign that breeding season has begun. Breeding lasts from March through August but is at its peak during the summer. These treefrogs spend most of the day resting and become active at night. Learn more about Cope’s grey treefrogs here.
This week’s question is from Justin Ballew, Extension Fruit and Vegetable Research Associate.
