Our part of Texas seems to have more than its share of critters. We still are overrun with giant grasshoppers but now we have frogs. They’re all fairly small, especially if compared to the bullfrogs in Louisiana. They come out mostly in the evening and while I don’t see them much, I see where they’ve been . . what they’ve left behind . . if you know what I mean!
Yesterday I was heading out to water the grapevines and right in front of the outside faucet, I saw this tiny little frog.
See him right next to the two acorns? Those acorns are quite small and so was that little frog. I sure hope he has the good sense to stay out of the chicken yard. I’m afraid he might become an evening snack if he ventures into their space. He surely is a tiny little guy. Wonder how old he is. Wonder how long they live in these parts.
it looks to me that are little tree frogs. I know them from the time we spent time in Brazil (my daughter lives there) I think the area where she lives has the same climate as where you live. In the evening the little frogs came into the shower in the beginning I thought it really scary but got used to them and took my shower with the frogs jumping from wall to wall.

He is tiny, so I doubt his good sense is much larger than a pea. =) Do they sing to you like the bullfrogs? When I was ten, I lived with my brother in El Paso for a very short time. The one thing I remember is the frog chorus every night!
We have little tan colored frogs like yours that live on our back patio… lots of plants there getting watered and shade all day. At night, two of them will crawl up on the windows to cool off – cooler indoors is transmitted through the glass. Who says animals are dumb.

that looks like a little tree frog. We have them down here in East Texas and they will take care of the bugs on your plants, they usually hide under something during the day and come out at night to eat. I turn a broken piece of pot over and put it in the flower bed. They will get under it for the day.You actually can buy a ‘frog’ house at the garden center. They are tiny but sure are loud at night.

He is a tiny little guy. This reminds me of the little green tree frogs that hung out all around our swimming pool in Arkansas at nite. They were all over, on the decking, on the steps of the pool, the railings, in the trees, everywhere. What was funny (sometimes) was that they would talk to each other and some nites, even though the temps were cool, we would have to close the windows facing the pool, because they were so noisy we couldn’t get to sleep. Funny little critters!
wonder if he eats grasshoppers. hehe
