Description:  These frogs range in size from 1-2 inches.  Coloration is gray to greenish with some dark mottling.  Skin on the back is warty.  The inside surface of the hind legs are washed with orange.

Habitat:  Most often found in trees over or near water, but can also be found away from water.

Behavior:  The voice of the Cope's Gray Treefrog is a musical trill.  The voice of the closely related Gray Treefrog is a slower, lower pitched trill.  This is the only way to distinguish between these two species other than DNA analysis.
