 New frog is very dark

I got a green tree frog last thursday and I liked him so much that I went back today to get another. Well the first one is light green, almost yellowish. New one is brown. He lightened up when he got in my tank, but he was still covered in brown spots. So he was green with brown spots, whereas the first one is all green. Is this normal? He looks healthy enough, ate about 5 or 6 crickets right off the bat.

They came from the same tank at the same store, and seem pretty young, they’re probably about an inch long, new one slightly smaller.

I have pictures, I’ll post them in a few minutes, gotta put them on flikr first.

Here is the "old" frog, although he is more green/less yellow than this. His "spots" are dirt :).

And these are both of the new one. He got darker again after he was done hunting and settled into the plant.

Those look like normal colors and very healthy frogs. I have four green tree frogs, and they all change from very light green to a dark brown and sometimes have spots just like those, depending on temp and humidity and mood. I don’t think it’s abnormal or anything to worry about!

The will also change color to blend in more with what they are sitting on.
