Hyla squirella, the Squirrel treefrog;
Lake county, Florida (01 June 2004).
This is an extremely old photo taken with my first digital camera. This is a Squirrel treefrog, a very common species that is extremely variable in appearance. A general rule of thumb for identification: When you can rule out all the other Hyla treefrogs as potential candidates, then it’s probably a Squirrel treefrog. Most Squirrel treefrogs are much brighter green. This is not a typical representative, but it’s also not any of the other Hyla treefrogs. It took forever to identify this one back in the day, and I had to rely on some community identification support via iNaturalist.org.
