Pine Woods Treefrog
Hyla femoralis
Hylidae (Treefrogs and Allies)

Identification Dr. Craig Guyer, Auburn University -- The small frog grows to about 1-3/4 inches long. It spends much of its time high in trees, especially pines, where it feeds on small insects. Its reddish-brown color provides camouflage against brown pine bark. It prefers pine forest habitats in the coastal plain region. A positive identification can be made by looking at the hind and portion of the thigh, as there will be a series of small orange or yellow spots.
