Have you heard of the squirrel treefrog? 🤔
Even as adults, these little cuties top out at 1.75 inches.
They are quite social froggos and will hibernate for the winter under the bark of fallen trees in groups of 30-40.
Like many amphibians, squirrel treefrogs will aestivate as well. This is essentially the opposite of hibernation: they “sleep” for long periods during the hottest and driest times of the year.
This minimizes water loss during harsh summers but these resilient hoppers may still lose up to 34% of their body weight during this period.
