  • The pacific tree frog is found Along the western coast of North America.

  • Western Montana and Nevada is the furthest east they can be found. But it can also be found in Cerros and Santa Cruz islands west of California.

  • This frog is more of a nocturnal amphibian because it can’t handle hot dry climates. Since it is found in the west where it is hot and dry in some parts it stays mostly hidden in fallen tree trunks or under rocks.

  • They also prefer really humid climates because it lessens the chance of dehydration.
