On sliding glass door
I saw many tadpoles before the actual frog...
Another Treefrog froglet that was near the riverbed, under the cover of thick vegetation, about mid-day.
~1.5 cm long
~1-1.5 cm long
Due to low cell-phone battery, my GPS was turned off to help save battery life, but I'm certain I'm within the 1,000 meter range of this spot.
While investigating possible reptile and amphibian lairs during the warm late afternoon, I lifted a large slab of concrete in the shade and next to a man-made water source, and discovered two Baja California Treefrogs taking refuge in the moist earth underneath. One of the specimens was an adult, approximately 3 cm in snout to vent length. The other was a brown froglet about half the size of the larger individual.
Just saw him chillin on this leaf down stream.
Lots of these guys in the stream.
First one I found.

I counted well over 30 individuals at the particular locale this specimen was found.
