Gray tree frog


It inhabits various kinds of wooded and forested habitats. It is both arboreal and terrestrial. It hides in tree holes, under bark, in rotten logs, under leaves and under tree roots when inactive. Eggs develop in shallow woodland ponds and marshes, puddles, ponds in forest clearings, swamps and bogs.


The decline of tadpole population, due to the introduction of exotic species in their spawning habitat, threatens this species.


As the species name "versicolor" implies, the grey tree frog is highly variable in colour, depending on the substrate where it is. This tree frog can change from green to grey and even from nearly black to white.
