Family: Hylidae, Treefrog
Description 1 1/2-5 1/2″ (3.8-14.0 cm). Largest treefrog in North America. Skin is warty; green, bronze, or gray. Enormous toe pads as large as external ear. Skin on top of head is fused to skull. Nocturnal. Highly predaceous, it will eat anything it can catch and swallow, including insects, spiders, and other frogs. The Cuban Treefrog is most abundant around ornamental fishponds and well-lighted patios and can be found on highway billboards, hiding among the timbers during the day or feeding on insects attracted to the night lights. This species was probably introduced by accident into Key West on vegetable produce brought from Cuba early in the century. It continues to spread on the Florida mainland by hitchhiking on crates and transplanted shrubs.
