Male peepers are 0.8" to 1.2" long, while females are 1.1" to 1.5" long. No wonder the peeper I photographed fit so nicely down around the base of the pistil and stamen!
"After breeding, some peepers establish home ranges between 1.2 and 5.4 meters in diameter around bark debris, logs, stumps, or other vegetation." (Hunter, Jr., Malcolm L. Maine Amphibians and Reptiles. Orono, Maine: The University of Maine Press, 1999. Print.)I found this peeper in my front stump garden. It is the perfect habitat for him/her, and there are plenty of tasty spiders, ants, and butterfly and moth larvae to munch on for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fun, fun, fun!
