I was on the prowl for copperheads and timbers in Western Massachusetts this July when I climbed into an abandoned swimming pool to check out the amphibians in the 6" or so of water in the deep end, and maybe find some hunting copperheads. Instead I found a little white tadpole that was resting with its brown fellows in the leaves. I scooped it into an empty water bottle,examined it closely and decided it was a gray tree frog. A few days later front limbs popped out and it absorbed its tail. It developed some pale yellow and blue pigments, and it looks like a dime sized dollop of key lime pie with giant eyes. I used to keep these hardy frogs as pets when I was a kid, I'm really looking forward to watching this little treasure grow. If it looses its green coloration as an adult, which most do, I'm expecting it will be a patternless ivory color.

Enjoy the pics! Try not to be too jealous.
