The Cuban Treefrog can be up to 5” in length and they have enormous toe pads. They are non-native and eat our native frogs, lizards, toads, small snakes, and insects. They have a voracious appetite. To combat this threat to our native species, it is recommended they be euthanized.  The best method is to put it in a plastic bag, put it in the freezer overnight, then put it out in the trash in the morning. Freezing is the humane way to kill this frog. These frogs have a toxic substance on their back, so best to use gloves when handling it. It is not poisonous!
