I know he's cute, but this is one of the invasive Cuban treefrogs. We Floridians are supposed to kill them because they are voracious carnivores and will eat large quantities of our native frogs, toads, lizards, and even small snakes. Females can grow up to 6 inches in body length and can lay over 15,000 eggs in a single season.
Cuban treefrog skin secretes a sticky substance that is irritating to the mucous membranes of the human eyes, nose, and mouth. The burning and itching sensation can last for hours.
They also inhabit bird houses (keeping the birds away), clog plumbing pipes, and cause power outages when they try to seek shelter in electrical equipment!Over the past few decades they have spread through most of the state of Florida and a few have been seen in South Georgia.
