Eleutherodactylus planirostris, the Greenhouse frog;
Lake county, Florida (11 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023
Featured here is a non-native Greenhouse frog I found floating in my mother’s Mount Dora pool. It had clearly been floating in there for quite some time and was a bit waterlogged and bloated. I pulled the little frog out and gave it a drying spot in the thick greenery at the edge of my mother’s yard. Despite being non-native, the Greenhouse frog is a fairly benign import to Florida and is not considered invasive.
