Kemp's Ridley Turtle and some neat frogs

Kemp's Ridley Turtle (Lepidochelys kempii)

Can you see the frog in this photo?

Cope's Gray Treefrog (Hyla chrysoscelis)

Pine Woods Treefrog (Hyla femoralis)

Strange bright green morph of Pine Woods Treefrog (wouldn't have guessed it except for watching it sing like a pine woods). I had never seen this before. After some discussion, I've begun wondering if this and one other found nearby were Hyla femoralis x andersonii hybrids. I might pursue this further.

Follow up: After looking into this further, I found out that a Hyla andersonii x femoralis hybrid has already been documented.
