So I had picked up this unknown frog quite a while ago, and I was wondering if someone could put a species on it for me. I don't think there's and question it is of the genus Leptopelis. I had found this picture in a google search:
http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.exotic-pets.co.uk/data/images/307m.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.exotic-pets.co.uk/african-big-eyed-tree-frog.html&usg=__InWJfkjJvRo5eiSFT_-OlFP0Rn0=&h=227&w=227&sz=12&hl=en&start=8&um=1&tbnid=jW1Qat98LLQvzM:&tbnh=108&tbnw=108&prev=/images?q=Leptopelis+viridis&hl=en&safe=off&sa=G&um=1

(sorry, wasn't sure how to just post a link)
This picture looks a heck of alot like mine, but I believe it is mislabeled, as none of the other Leptopelis viridis pics I have seen look anything like it. The others are all a darker, bulkier frog with dark eyes. As you can see, the identifying characteristic has to be those part red eyes, and also, it is a male with a single clicking call.

If anyone has a guess, please let me know.

Thanks,

Pat
