Antilles coqui'

Eleutherodactylus johnstonei

Description:

It's a small frog that whistles at night, all night long: it starts whistling as soon as the sun sets and continues whistling until sunrise. It's especially loud if it's humid/rainy. In times of drought I've experienced no sound at all at night: it's very eery and 'unnatural' to hear nothing since usually all nights are accompanied by its whistling.

Habitat:

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist areas. It is found in Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Bermuda, Colombia, Dominica, French Guiana, Grenada, Guadeloupe, Guyana, Jamaica, Martinique, Montserrat, the Netherlands Antilles, Panama, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, and Venezuela.

Notes:

Somehow this frog had managed to come into my bedroom. In the morning I found it on a shutter trying to find a way to get out from the screen (picture #3). I was able to 'guide' it outside without touching it. Pictures # 1 and 2 were taken in fact outside.
