Green Tree Frogs, the Pumpkin Patch & Your Pets

Pumpkin Patches around the Nation are getting ready for the crowds of people, looking for the perfect pumpkin for the holidays.

But at some pumpkin patches, cute little green tree frogs are picking their favorite pumpkins. 

When noticed by people, these little green tree frogs can sometimes draw a crowd of their own. This frog does kind of look like Kermit the Frog, one of Jim Henson's, Muppet characters.

Green tree frogs have several natural defenses, one being camouflage, which doesn't work when they're picking pumpkins.

Another of the green tree frog's defenses is the ability to secrete a toxic substance over their skin, that protects them from being prey to other animals, your dog and cat included. Please contact your veterinarian if your pet eats a Green tree frog.

The Green tree frogs do play an important part in our ecosystem & are a valued access to the area.When you're picking your pumpkin from the pumpkin patch, please be sure to leave the little green tree frog behind.
