Tree frogs and Leopard frogs: do they change color and why?
Arman B, Amaan S, Zann B, Trent Y, Nicole S, Alyssa R
We noticed that our newly adopted tree frog seems to get lighter and darker in color in his tank. We investigated what factors may cause both the tree frog and the leopard frog to change color. We changed the color of the background and the temperature of the tank. We photographed the frogs in each environment keeping settings on the camera the same. We found that color does not affect color change, but temperature does affect color change.
