The critter above is an invasive Cuban Tree Frog. This non-native species frequently enters homes through the plumbing vents and ends up in the toilet. This very thing happened to me last week, giving me quite a scare when I saw him staring at me when I entered the loo. Luckily, my frog went back where he came from after I sealed the toilet with several layers of Saran Wrap. I’m normally that squeamish, but that frog game me the heebie-jeebies. So of course I had to do a little research. They come in several colors and the females can be six inches long! So what do you do with them? Beats me. Let me know if you find out!
Cuban tree frogs were introduced to South Florida in the early 20th century, probably via shipping crates from the frog’s native habitat, which includes Cuba, the Bahamas and the Cayman Islands…Today, breeding populations are found in Cedar Key, Gainesville and Jacksonville, and lone frogs have been found in Georgia, South Carolina and the Florida Panhandle.
