Name this Amphibian and Win a Free E-Book!

Ok, I’m on a kick here.  This identification game is just too much fun.  Today at our pool we found this amazing creature.

Looks like an albino toad of some sort doesn’t he?

Here are some clues.  He is smaller than 2 inches I would say.  Very fast and can climb up the side of a deep Tupperware with no problem.  He jumped in our pool and swam all the way down to the deep end and back up again.

It’s not so easy to identify.  Think you can?  Give it a try and link here in comments with your best guess.  The winner will be randomly chosen by comments (not by answer).  We are happy to answer any questions you may have about this little guy as well.

Best of luck to you!  We will choose a winner on Tuesday the 11th after 8 p.m. EST and give them a free e-book of their choosing from Little Acorn Learning.  Be sure to check back.

  1. It looks like a tree frog. We don't have them that color where I live – they are much more green. I guess they use camouflage for the type of trees that they live in. Pretty cool.

  3. Funny story how I know this is a gray tree frog…..my son has ADHD so when he was young we encouraged him to spend a lot of time in our backyard because being outside really balanced him. He is also very stubborn and one day when he was about 7 we were butting heads because I had asked him to get something that he just could not seem to find. we both went out separate ways to cool down when he suddenly comes running from the back yard telling me there was a tree frog there. Well, we live in the house I grew up in and never having seen a tree frog in CT I told him I was pretty sure it was just one of the green frogs from the pond. He was insistent so I went with him to look. He pointed to the tree and I saw nothing. He finally put his hand very slowly up to the tree and said "because he's in camo". A call to our favorite naturalist, Miss Judy at Winding Trails confirmed that there are indeed tree frogs in Ct. 7 years later my son is still an outdoorsmen who fishes and hunts pheasant. And I had it eat my words because even though I had lived in the same house for 30 years, I did not know we have the perfect habitat for gray tree frogs!

  4. He looks like a grey tree frog. I was surprised though I though toads were bumpy and frogs were smooth. Is that a myth or is he misnamed? Thanks for the fun.

  6. This is an eastern grey tree frog! We have a lot of them around here and my favorite moment with one was a few summers back when I was working at a camp. The counselor in the cabin next to me came out of her screen door and one of these plopped right on her head and sat there first thing in the morning. It must have been sitting on the top of her door frame. She was petrified and flung it (poor thing), but all the kids got a nature lesson right off the bat that morning. It was okay. We released it on a nearby tree.
