Childhood revisited

Hyla meridionalis (c) Andrew Gray

Today was another blue sky day, and a great one to go looking for one of the few amphibians found here – the Stripeless Tree frog, Hyla merdionalis. With the various contrasting environments here, ranging from hot coastal areas to high altitude rocky mountains, it means there are not so many areas both hot and wet enough for supporting this amphibian here.

However, following a kind tip off from my good friend Matt Wilson, I headed north to a small lagoon where they had previously been spotted. Sure enough, within 5 minutes of arriving I had found my first frog! What a beauty it was, and what childhood memories it sparked off..
