The biggest California Tree Frog tadpole I've ever seen!
This little guy was hiding between rocks in the stream.
Still plenty of California Tree Frog Tadpoles in the rocky streams...
Came across tadpoles in Altadena.
Spotted a few tadpoles in the stream leading up to the waterfall.
Suprising species to find in such an arid, hot land. Found sitting inches above a pool of water, with an air temperature around 98 degrees.
A California Treefrog that was encountered on a boulder next to the larger pool at the spring in Palm Canyon of the Anza-Borrego Campgrounds, around 10 AM.
I am fairly certain that it is Pseudacris cadaverina, due to the spotting on its back, and from cross-referencing other photos for an identification.
The California tree frog or California chorus frog (Pseudacris cadaverina) is a "true" tree frog (family Hylidae) from southern California (USA) and Baja California (Mexico). Until recently, the California tree frog was classified in the genus Hyla.
