Cuban Tree Frog

Osteopilus septentrionalis


About two inches long.


This individual was hiding in the crown of a queen palm. We were cutting the tree down (it is non-native, and was also leaning dangerously close to a structure) and the frog made a leap for safety when the chainsaw got too close. In spite a drop of about 15ft it survived!


We looked at A LOT of Cuban tree frog pictures before finally deciding to let this frog go. I still haven't found anything that really matches, but greenhouse frog or pine frog seemed close.
