    I've seen small ones before but you ever seem to see the large ones they must really hear you coming. this was the first really big wild one I've seen. i would love to see the pics

    this guy measured just under 6" and almost an inch thick.
    He came from logan Village and was in a house that backed onto a creek with an abudance af large green tree frogs.

    This is the one that Dottyback was talking about. She occasionally mistakes one of my fingers for a fish ...

    This CTS is by no means a small animal, but she is dwarfed by comparison ...

    Note the different headshapes (not just size) between the Green phase and the Gold phase (which, in my opinion, should be listed as separate sub-species).
