Little Frog (With Black Stripes Over Eyes)


I found this frog under a brush pile when I was out playing in the rain. Does anyone know if this is a tree frog? It's very small and fast, with a black stripe crossing over both eyes and a white line at the lips. It's legs are striped but it's body really is not (it's vaguely spotted).

Totally cute.

I have frogs here that sounds like bats, ducks and all kinds of things. :)
Trying to remember if it chirped when I caught it? I will look up the Wood Frog! Thanks Kirk :)))
