Invasive Cuban Tree Frog??

Last evening, this tree frog was sitting on the deck railing. This morning he was sleeping behind a hurricane shutter. I thought it was a Florida Tree Frog until I realized how large it really was, around 4". I had read that any tree frog over 2.5" was an Invasive Cuban Tree Frog. So now I'm thinking that's what it is. I looked it up and am pretty sure I'm right.

For info on what to do about the invasive frog....

I saw the picture in the link you gave. From the pattern of its legs, it does look like a Cuban tree frog. Nice find.

Thanks for visiting. The bigger boy in my pic is now a father and the other is 'pregnant' Time passes.

They are "other earthly" ... I haven't seen any down here in Naples recently. (Such an edict probably means I'll see a bund of them tomorrow.)

He's pretty big - especially his eyes! Nice shot!
