Yesterday I discovered a small tree frog in our house. It was perched on top of a power strip cable. I captured the little animal and put it in an enclosure that I used to keep a scorpion in. This afternoon I made a little background with some pieces of bark and a potted Epipremnum aureum plant and took several close-up photos of the little tree frog.
Yesterday I didn't know the binomial name of the little tree frog. I had searched online for photos of tree frogs and the closest match I could find were photos of Hyla versicolor, which has also a white spot under the eyes. So in the afternoon I emailed Tim Burkhardt if he could provide me with an id. And a few hours later I got a reply back; the little frog is the Mexican Masked treefrog, Smilisca baudinii.
Other common names for this species include:
