That happened to me about a year and a half ago. Definitely looks like a cuban. They get big fast, so be prepared! It's kind of fun to get a free frog though. It's amazing how they can live in such terrible conditions.

Best of luck!

Haha, I love finding little hitchhiker herps! We would see all kind of stuff when I worked in Home Depot years ago, frogs, snakes and geckos would all show up every now and then. I would say your right in guessing that the frog is a Cuban. They are definitely one of the more common hitchhiking species.

The bad thing about finding stuff like this is that you don't know what pathogens they may be carrying.

Edit: FYI, Petco generally cannot take animals like this.

I had a similar thing happen with a bromeliad from Puerto Rico a year ago, except my hitchhiker was a clutch of Coqui eggs. I thought they were snail eggs at first as we kept seeing these giant land based snails all over the place while there. After realizing what they were through research I set them up in a container and 2 weeks later 24 super tiny froglets came hopping out.

Glad you found your little guy early. Hopefully Petco will find him a home.

For me I felt obligated to them so I raised them up. A year later 20 have reached adult. A few have since traded or donated a few for hopes that others may be able to introduce them to the hobby. I still have a group also.
