Gray tree frog in a potted plant on our deck table. They blend in quite well. Stayed for a few day, then disappeared. Small tree frogs are often found on our umbrella on our deck. They are quite small and usually go unnoticed.
Our native snakes occupy a wide range of habitats, including: fields, forests, wetlands, ponds, lakes, streams, rocky hillsides, farmland, vacant lots and residential neighborhoods. Within those habitats, snakes may travel along the ground, swim, climb trees and bushes, and venture below ground. Although some snakes do burrow, most “snake holes” are produced by chipmunks, mice, shrews and other small mammals. Many snakes utilize these burrows for food, shelter and egg laying sites, but most species don’t dig holes.
