Pacific Tree Frogs range all along the West Coast from British Columbia to Baja and inland as far as Idaho. Most are found in native scrubs near a water source and vary in color from dark brown to bright green. (Interesting fact: The green frogs can sometimes turn brown in color but the brown frogs cannot turn green.) As tadpoles, these frogs eat mostly algae but sometimes their smaller siblings or bugs. As adults they are entirely insectivores.
We have two Pacific Tree Frogs at Tree Frog Treks named Capp and Mish. These two were raised in a local backyard in the Mission District from tadpoles fro the first few months of life. They were descended from the population that was rescued from an engineering yard here in the city. This population has been living here at least 100 years. Capp and Mish both morphed in 2008 and their sexes are unknown.
