Here’s some interesting Tree Frog Facts!

  • Gray tree frogs are a nocturnal species. 
  • They hide in tree holes, under bark, in rotten logs, under leaves and under tree roots when inactive. 
  • At night, they search for insects in trees, where they can climb vertically or move horizontally with specially adapted toe pads.
  •  Gray treefrogs may congregate around windows and porch lights to eat insects that are attracted to the light.
