Missouri Tree Frogs

When we travel, we always watch for natural wildlife, as opposed to the human variety. We are more interested and comfortable with nature and the simple things.

Recently, while traveling through Missouri we were able to enjoy some tree frog sightings.

We saw the Gray Tree Frogwho is native to most of the Eastern United States, 
including our own area of the Great Lakes, and into southeastern Canada.

We also were surprised by the unique and rarely seen Missouri Tree Frog. Life is filled with surprises; you just have to look.


  1. LOL @ the Missouri Tree Frog! That's brilliant, so cute and funny.

    As for the Grey Tree Frog, I've never seen one, though presumably they are around in my area of southern Ontario too. I suspect the boys would love to "meet" a Grey Tree Frog!

  2. OMG, what a shock it would be to find him in your back yard ... I'll stick with the little Gray Tree Frogs, thank you :)

  3. Bwahahahahahahaha. That last tree frog made me laugh out loud. I just wasn't expecting that.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  4. I love the sound of tree frogs. I used to have one I named Henry that hung around my hot tub back at the old house. We used to have some nice conversations. The last one is hilarious.

  5. LOL! the first gray ones are really cute.

  6. Oh wow - what a wonderful looking creature - almost blends in with the bark of the tree!! Take care

  7. bwwwahaa! I nearly spit out me tea. hilarious.
    My middle child (girl) was on a big frog catching spree this summer. I don't know how many she actually caught by the end, but it was intense searching let me tell you. thankfully she understands that you look for a few minutes, but that the best thing for wild animals is "free and in the wild".

  8. Well someone is serious with their tree frog. lol...
    Amazing how those little tree frogs can climb vertical like that.


  9. Loved it, loved it! :-) I've never seen either one of these critters, though I think I'd be more startled by the second one. Missouri has some mighty pretty country though, so anything is possible! ;-)

  10. The gray tree frog was so interesting and then that Missouri Tree frog showed up and just made me laugh so much.

  11. You made me LOL. That was a great surprise at the end. I never see any frogs around here in SW VA. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
