If your frogs are mature, they should have the yellow. Have you picked them up to look? It's very difficult to see normally...

d_virginiana ~ Yay, I looked there isn't any yellow. anyway it is about the size of a quarter. I was just trying to indentify the little fella. but I am bout 90% sure it is a gray tree frog. it is starting to get some splotches on it's back and legs now.

Let me guess, you're in the South? If so, it's probably a grey tree frog. They run rampant around here, and if it's wc it's either that or a Cope's depending on where you are. The only difference between the two is the call, so you'll have to wait till it's older to tell.

WC stands for Wild Caught. CB stands for Captive Bred

Their calls are different. I believe Cope's have higher more frequent calls than greys. Once it starts calling, look up the two calls on the internet and see which one your frog sounds like.

Hm.. just out of curiosity, are you going to house it with your grays? They have such similar requirements and can't interbreed, so I imagine they'd be good together...

opps *frog*. I house all my grays together. I have a total of 9 frogs. 7 grays and 2 American green tree frogs.

Just to let you know, its nearly impossible to tell the two subspecies apart, and if your guys are just starting to mature, it may still be some time before they begin to call, and they would have to have the right temps and humidities to trigger breeding calls. Other chirps and things really won't let you tell the difference. But if they were all caught in the same area then you have a good bet that they are all one or the other...or at least most of them are one subspecies.

Also, if any of the grays have been raised in captivity from tadpoles, some may not develop the yellow on their legs. Mine never did, even after having them for nearly 2 years.

No, mine are wc. and they are all roughly from the same area. I don't really know if they are calling breeding calls or not. sometimes they just croak for a litle while. then other times they go back and forth croaking at each other(which I think that is their territorial call).
