I haven't caught a frog or lizard for many years, since way back when
I had to hide them in a shoebox from my dad so I could enjoy releasing
them a week later.
I found a tiny green frog in my yard, I suspect he is the product of
all the croaking racket that was going on a couple months ago! These
babies are all over our driveway and yard.
I saved him from the lawnmower, kept him overnight, fed him a
mealworm, snapped a few pics and sent him on his way. He is back in my
garden. I think there was some terrible moment where my sweetie
thought I was going to KEEP him - the thought of capturing a pet in
good health and forcing him to live with us is not something that
appeals to my better half. Fortunately I was just checking size and
throwin 'em back ;)
I found a sweet identification guide, but it's for canadian frogs
only. I'm damn close to BC, but no cigar. The site is
and I thought this guy looks close, Hyla Regilla:
I need one of those sites for the US!!
I'm in Northwest Washington, about 15 miles in from the coast near the
San Juan islands. Any ideas?
