Looks like a Cuban Tree Frog... a non-native invasive species to Florida. It has no natural predators and is causing some major problems.

Cute though!

Scott,

NASTY!!!! Really, NASTY!!! I'd like you to think about that word, that it is a frog that you are applying that word to, and ask yourself what the motivation you might have for using such a word to describe any other species that has evolved on Earth.

As someone who works with invasive species at work all the time (we are battling an outbreak of Asian Long-horn Beetles in our wetland forest just this week), I have learned it is not the fault of the "invading" species in putting the natural world out of balance. WE are the ones who have put the natural world out of balance!!!

So who is it that is really NASTY?? Just something to think about. Richard in Staten Island.

I completly agree with woodsman view, at the end we're the ones to blame not the frogs, snakes, or any other species

On the other hand that's how such a diversity of species has formed... In a few hundred years the Cuban Tree Frogs in Cuba and the ones in the U.S. may evolve into separate and unique species that are treasured by hobbyists. Then again maybe the world will end in 2012 .

Just for the record I'm only putting out an opposing idea for the sake of conversation. I don't want any negative rep points for seemingly supporting species invasion .

Cuban tree frogs are really nice frogs. I have kept them and they are suprisingly active. Just do not release it but that is pretty much par for all the animals we keep in captivity.
