Grey Treefrog

Juvenile Grey Treefrog with red eyes

This photo was taken in the Gosling Gardens on June 7, 2014 at the Guelph Arboretum during a Mothing program with Candice Talbot. One of the Young Naturalists found this grey treefrog in the fragrant thyme growing near the pond. We all wondered why it had red-eyes. Another fascinating question to figure out…

Here is an example of an adult grey treefrog that Ann found while cutting down branches:

Note the very different eye colouring from the juvenile (Spruceline Farm, June 2014)
