They're back!

Cuban Tree Frog

Invasive species in Florida.
Florida Fish & Wildlife advises destroying these frogs when found.
They seem to be appearing more every year.
I do know the few I've had in my yard came via new plants I've purchased. He was too cute to harm.
Instead I share him with you.

I am well-known for encouraging species that are to be deterred - mice, pigeons, squirrels, ants, crows . . I'd happily feed and protect these frogs !

@Ronnie 2¢: It is said Ronnie, you can tell the character of a person by how they treat animals. I've thought about your pet snails.

An excellent shot of him, Barb ... and he's obviously happy in your yard! ;D

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thank you, Judy. First one I've seen this year. He seemed comfortable with the camera and me! ;D

[ Ah, yes, thank-you on the snails, Barbara. They live for two years or so very happily and are good and quiet companions. ]
