History [ edit ]

The American Green Tree Frog, an arboreal amphibian, is a common species belonging to the genus Hyla. Native to the south-eastern parts of the United States, it can also be found, though in smaller numbers in Puerto Rico and may be also in Mexico and it is not an endangered species. The natural habitat of the American Green Tree Frog is swamps, marshes, and the edges of ponds, lakes, and streams, particularly where there are abundant small trees or shrubs. The name tree frog, or tree toad, designates any of various small arboreal amphibians of the family Hylidae, which are characterized for having long toes terminating in adhesive disks. The family Hylidae has about 300 species distributed throughout tropical and temperate regions of Southeast Asia and Australia and especially of America. This beautiful creature is a popular species of pet frog.
