What sort of permit process did you have to arrange before bringing them into the US?

I'm interested as well, those things are dangerous and helping wipe out local frog species in Hawaii and Florida.

Greetings,

There are no native frogs in Hawai'i. There, coqui are a threat to native arthropods (there are hundreds of species of fruit fly in Hawai'i) - but it mainly annoys the hell out of humans...

My apologies, you are correct there. I was actually thinking along the lines of its competing with bird populations there for food resources in Hawaii and bird/reptile/amphibian populations in California. There was also a mention of their calls masking those of native species in reference to coqui introduced to Florida (Austin, 1975).

Austin, D. F., and A. Schwartz. 1975. Another exotic amphibian in Florida, Eleutherodactylus coqui. Copeia 1975(1):188.
