What is a Cuban treefrog?

Osteopilus septentrionali, or Cuban treefrog, is native to Cuba, Isla de la Juventud, Bahamas and the Cayman Islands.

Established breeding populations in Florida, but they have begun to expand their range into other southeastern states. It has been found in other states as stowaways in shipments of plants.

Cuban treefrogs prey on native frogs and toads. It competes with native species for the available resources both as adults and as tadpoles. If you are sure of the identity, then humane euthanizing can help control this species around your home.
