Montgomery County, TX, in pine forest near a pond. The pattern is throwing me off. This frog was about an inch long; maybe a juvenile.

My best GUESS would be the highly variable Hyla squirella. :?

Hmm...I think that may be it. I've never encountered one before so this one, with its tan coloration, threw me for a loop. Someone else mentioned it may be a squirella today as well. I'll consult with some other folks who had a much wider range of guesses to see what they think about this possibility. Thanks!

I agree, that looks exactly like a Hyla squirella I found in Louisiana.
Best,
Nick
