Cuban Treefrog

Osteopilus septentrionalis
(Duméril and Bibron, 1841)
Orlando, Florida. February 17, 2002.

I found my first Cuban on the side of a friend’s house in Orlando, and at the time I was quite surprised that Osteopilus could be found that far north. Since then this introduced species has spread to many other locations on the Florida peninsula. The frog pictured here was found on the main road in Everglades National Park. They’re quite common there, and I’m sure they eat up any smaller frogs they can find.

My Flickr album for this species is here.

HerpMapper records for this species are here.
