Green Tree Frog

The green tree frog, the Louisiana State Amphibian, can change from grey when it is cold to bright green when it warms up.

This frog produces several calls including territorial, alarm, encounter and courtship calls. It is often called “rain frog” because it produces a quacking noise when it rains.
