Although it’s seemed likely that treefrogs would be present at the BFS, we haven’t had any confirmed sightings until now. While monitoring the ‘new’ toad pond at the BFS, Joint Science students Erin Baumler and Maya Higgins and their faculty advisor Marion Preest spotted this Baja California Treefrog, Pseudacris hypochondriaca (formerly Pseudacris regilla), in the pond.
