Cuban Tree Frog ( One Amphibian )

Osteopilus septentrionalis

Description:

At around 5:00 p.m. in the afternoon, my Grandson told me, that there was an amphibian, resting under the front door, outside, nightlight bulb. I went outside, and yes, there was an amphibian, resting under the front door, outside, nightlight bulb. Look at my photos, and you will see, an amphibian, resting under, the front door, outside, nightlight bulb. This amphibian, was very early. This amphibian, was waiting for it to start getting dark, so I would turn the front door, outside, nightlight bulb on. Once the nightlight bulb was on, and it was dark outside, then the prey insects and bugs, would start flying and crawling all around, this nightlight bulb. ( Moths, beetles, etc. ). Now this amphibian, is in the perfect spot, ( resting under the nightlight bulb ), to catch these flying and crawling, prey, insects and bugs, that are flying and crawling, all around, this nightlight bulb. I went outside at 9:00 p.m., and the nightlight bulb is on, but I am now, not able to see this amphibian, with this nightlight bulb on.

Habitat:

I spotted one amphibian, resting under the front door, outside, nightlight bulb.

Once the nightlight bulb is on, then this would start attracting prey, insects and bugs, to start flying and crawling, all around this nightlight bulb. These insects and bugs, are the perfect prey, for this amphibian.

Can't see much in way of detail or shape... I'm assuming the amphibian in question is the frog shaped whitish shape that seems to be pressed between the wall mount and the glass pane of the light. My best guess for location, overall color and shape is Cuban Tree Frog.
