Gray Tree Frog (Hyla versicolor)
1.5 - 2 in. Long
18.9 – 24" Wingspan
Ohana is a wild gray tree frog who got caught up in a change of regulations.
Traditionally, the Museum was permitted to house native reptiles and amphibians for short periods of time as temporary education animals. Our longest visitors were typically a toad or frog who would spend the winter visiting schools and ski resorts until a spring release. In 2018 those rules changed and any animal kept for over 24 hours needed to become a permanent resident. Luckily, we only had one at the time and it was this amazing little frog.
The Museum no longer "borrows" wildlife for more than 24 hours in keeping with the conditions of our State and Federal permits.
