Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Hyla femoralis
Pine Woods Treefrog

Okefenokee Swamp, Georgia
April 21, 2003

There's nothing like a wet road on a rainy spring night for finding amphibians.  I heard femoralis call on many trips south, but this was my first time seeing some. You have to catch one for a positive identification - they are known by the orange/yellow spots on the rear of the thigh on the back legs.

This frog was one of several Pine Woods Treefrogs found on the road that night, and documented in my Frogwalkin' journal entry.
