I found about 50 of these guys within two days. All I had to do was move around some leaves and 1 or 2 would pop out. I found about 10 in a log that was in the middle of the stream.
Tadpoles and newly changed frogs.
Apparently it thinks the dogs water bowl is home. It's been here around a month and retreats into the bushes.
Found in a pond with many other tadpoles. Some were partially metamorphed and others were much smaller.
There were many of these tadpoles in a small pond, ranging from tiny to this partial metamorph.
These were tadpoles in a pool of water. It was right next to a huge stream with bullfrog and western toad tadpoles in it too. Couldn't get any good pictures of the western toads. Also, I heard some croaking around the stream.
Shortly after seeing the tadpoles in stream Jeff Norland found this light colored Baja Tree Frog and I took a few vouchers.
After lunch we drove a dirt road hoping for horned lizards or a snake, saw a fresh snake track but couldn't find snake. Then made it to a stream and found these tadpoles which Jeff Lemm ID'd as Baja tree frogs.
Found in a creek in a park. 7:00pm 21 degrees c. 20% cloud cover
Caught and released for UCLA course study
Found in stream at Stunt Ranch, Calabasas
Approximately 3 cm SVL; bright green dorsum with dark blotchy pattern and distinctive dark eye stripe from snout across pupil to forearm. It was perched in a shallow portion of a running creek, vocalizing.
We found a few of these but only took this pic.
Yet another tree frog found in the sans area by the pond.
The kids found a frog and toad at same time so we took pics of them together.
Another different green colored one with minimal pattern.
Was able to get out of car and get closer pic of this one.
Another tan treefrog, was raining pretty hard so took these pics from car so didn't get close up.
