The Barking Treefrog is the largest of the native tree frogs in the United States. They are found in the southeast part of Mississippi, as well as in a separate population in the northern part of the state (Peterson et al., 2016). They are large with rougher-looking moist skin, often green or olive with dark circular spots throughout.
- Large in size
- Dark circles throughout (differentiates from other tree frogs)
- No clean white line on side of body (differentiates from green tree frog)
Pristine pine savannas with sandy soils, low elevation forested wetlands (Peterson et al., 2016)
Male call sounds almost like a barking dog, a blunt “doh” or “doo” sound
