Pacific Tree Frog Mating Season
Reader Bonnie Glantz shared this photo of two frogs in the water that she said were in the process of mating.
“It is technically called amplexus,” said knowledgeable local Shanna Archibold. “The males and females both change color to match their surroundings using chromatophores.”
According to animalspot.net:
Pacific Tree Frogs become reproductively mature within 18 months. Their breeding season starts around November and continues till June-July…
The male frogs move to breeding locations and calls to attract the females. The males call both from inside and outside the water. During this time, the males fight with other males over females.
