Hyla cinerea, 06 June 2022

Hyla cinerea, the American green treefrog;
Volusia county, Florida (06 June 2022).

A bit of Kermit action with this one, right? This is a fairly classic American green treefrog hanging out one night in Ormond Beach, Florida. I don’t encounter this species as much as I used to when I was a kid, but there are still dense populations of them in the region. My hometown, Ormond Beach, is loaded with them — once you get outside of town, at least. Most of our neighborhoods have fallen to the Cuban tree frog (a large non-native species that likes to eat smaller tree frogs).
