Gray Tree Frog

We just learned about the American Bullfrog.

Another type of frog is the Gray Tree Frog.

Many of the poison dart frogs we learned about were very colorful to warn off predators.
Other frogs that are not poisonous have to use camouflage to hide so they don't get eaten.

The Gray Tree Frog can also be green, black or white depending on where they live and where they need to hide.
They are tree frogs, and they almost never leave the trees.
These frogs are nocturnal, meaning they are awake at night, and sometimes can be found by windows and porch lights where bugs are flying around because of the lights.
