Cuban Treefrog

 

Twice as large as our native Green Treefrog, the Cuban Treefrog thrives in developed areas where lights draw a steady source of insects. A fierce predator, this treefrog adversely affects native treefrog populations through competition for food and habitat and through direct predation. Cuban Treefrogs are eaten by aquatic snakes, garter snakes, and mammals.
