Southern Maryland Reptiles and Amphibians: Copes Gray Treefrog

There are two species of gray treefrogs in Maryland: Gray Treefrog (Hyla versicolor) and Cope’s Gray Treefrog (Hyla chrysoscelis). You can’t tell them apart by looking at them. They do however have different calls.

This frog is a Cope’s Gray Treefrog (Hyla chrysoscelis) found on my deck. I’ve heard its call and the map (link below) confirms its range in Southern MD.

You can hear their calls and see a map of Southern MD showing their ranges here.
