“Hi, Chip! I thought you might enjoy this picture of a treefrog sleeping on the back of this ornamental toad on top of a toad house. I took the photo while my husband was barbecuing and I was cleaning up our landscaping. The treefrog stayed until sunset. It made me smile, and I hope it makes you smile, too.” – Katha Pancake, Hancock-Wood Electric Cooperative
The photo is definitely a once-in-a lifetime shot, Katha, thanks for sending. It’s a gray treefrog, and they have chameleon-like capabilities. Their skin changes color from neon green to a splotchy pearl-gray to better blend into the particular habitat they’re using at the time.
