    Cute! Where'd you get him? I have a Gray that I'm pretty sure is a Cope's, but there are two variations-he looks some like mine, though mine is light gray and real nice turtle too! :p

    I rescued them from a swimming pool. The only way you can tell if your frog is a Cope's is it's call. If it is a female it won't call at all. But males will call and you can try a simple test to see which variation your frog is. If your frog is a Cope's and a male it may respond to this clip. http://srelherp.uga.edu/anurans/sounds/hylchr.mp3 If you can play it near his enclosure. It may take a few tries. If it is a common gray tree frog and a male. It may respond to this clip http://www.herpsofnc.org/herps_of_NC/anurans/Hylchrver/Common Gray Treefrog.mp3

    She explained it perfectly ^ Though I've seen most Copes' tend to be a bit darker than Common Gray Tree Frogs.

    I'm pretty sure mine's common then-a much lighter gray too, but for sure a female, so she won't call. I was aware you can tell by the call, but also sometimes the patterns/markings/colorations and such-though not as reliable. I also found mine outside recently-I haven't heard of or seen them much for sale and most people I know with them have caught them-even if you did buy them, they'd most likely be wild caught.
