Cuban Tree Frog
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Cuban Treefrog is native to Cuba, the Bahamas, and the Cayman Islands. This large frog has been introduced in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the British Virgin Islands, many islands of the Lesser Antilles, Florida, and Hawaii. Cuban treefrogs are infamous hitchhikers, and were likely introduced accidentally in cargo shipments from the Caribbean. In Florida, this species has become increasingly common, and is now found throughout the peninsula and in isolated areas of the panhandle. Introduction incidents have also been reported in South Carolina, Georgia, and Texas. This large frog is considered an invasive species, since it negatively affects native frogs, is a nuisance to humans, and can even cause short-circuits of utility switches, causing costly power outages.
