Native to the Southeast but stocked elsewhere, mosquitofish are also known by their genus name, Gambusia. These live-bearing fish resemble guppies, with males and females only reaching 1-1/2 and 2-1/2 inches long, respectively.

Wild Facts: The grod that whistles

If you whistle for a dog to come, you'll know what a bird-voiced treefrog sounds like. Males call to attract females from May through September, emitting several high-pitched, bird-like whistles in a row. You're more likely to hear this nocturnal amphibian than you are to see it, since it is small, well camouflaged and only descends from trees to breed. If you do catch a glimpse, the bird-voiced treefrog looks like a miniature gray treefrog but without the yellow inner thigh color.
