(Duméril and Bibron, 1841)
Sonora, Mexico, August 21, 2011
We had just arrived in the southern Sonora town of Alamos, and had checked into our hotel. Walking to my room, I spotted my first Mexican Treefrog sitting on the edge of the swimming pool. I dropped my luggage, reached for my camera and took these pictures. During the August monsoons in southern Sonora, Smilisca baudinii are active and commonly seen, in Alamos as well as in the field.
