The squirrel tree frog (Hyla squirella) is a small species of tree frog found in the southeastern United States, from Texas to Virginia.

Squirrel tree frogs are small frogs, about 1.5 inches in length as adults. There are several color variations, but most commonly they are green and look very much like the American green tree frog (Hyla cinerea). They can also be varying shades of yellow or brown, sometimes with white or brown blotching.

This is an introduced species in the Bahamas.[1]
