The gray tree frogs heard in the clip below are North American relatives of the more famous and more brightly colored tropical rainforest frogs. Like their tropical cousins, they live in trees, climbing by means of small suction cups at the end of each toe. The frogs in this recording live in ash and maple trees, where they pursue a never ending quest for the next mosquito.

But both ash and maple trees are threatened by invasive insects, which people inadvertently move around when they move firewood. Protect cool frogs and native trees by buying and burning firewood locally.
