Green native tree frog with a yellow (diffuse) line running from mouth to hind leg. Black to brown spots are abundant on dorsal side (along with some yellow speckling). Banding present on hind legs as well. Hyla gratiosa is a nocturnal amphibian that spends its days in the treetops. During harsh weather conditions (like heat waves or drought) it practices aestivation, burying itself underground in order to preserve water and maintain body temperature. H. gratiosa's chorus call can sound like the sound of barking dogs at a distance, thus the common name.
This frog was found in an outdoor observatory late at night. The surrounding area is an organic farm and pine/hardwood forest.
The white powder present on this frog's legs was from diatomaceous earth that was spread around the edges of the walls (for pest control).
