American green tree frog (Hyla cinerea)

The frog is medium-sized, up to 6 cm (2.5 inches). Their bodies are usually colored green with shades ranging from bright yellowish olive to lime green. The darkness of the color can change depending on lighting or temperature. There may be some small patches of gold or white. They may also have a white, pale yellow, or cream-colored line running from the jaw or upper lip to heey the groin. They have smooth skin and large toe pads. The abdomen is pale yellow to white. Males have wrinkled throats (indicating the vocal pouch) and are slightly smaller than females. Like most frogs, they eat a diet of insects (mostly crickets, moths, flies, fireflies and other small invertebrates).
