Several male Canyon Treefrogs call at night from the edge of a rocky creek in Arizona. At the end are several examples of a two-part high-pitched encounter call.

Canyon Treefrogs rest on large rocks at the edge of a creek in the mountains of Arizona. At first glance, the frogs are not easy to see due to their color and pattern which lets them blend in with the rock.

A large adult Canyon Treefrog crawls across the face of a large rock and settles in to rest, using its color and pattern to disappear into the rock. Another hops into a creek to escape from danger.
