July 29, 2015: Gray Treefrog

Two species of Gray Treefrog (Cope's & Eastern) could be present at the Park.  The only way to distinguish one species from the other is by call, chromosome count (diploid in Cope's & tetraploid in Eastern), and the number and size of red blood cells.  This Gray Treefrog was found in Prairie Dogbane. 7/6/15 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
