The tiny island of Cedar Key, Florida has been invaded by Cubans, not by the good people of Cuba, but by their frogs.
|Besides the size and tan color, another characteristic that makes the Cuban different from our natives is the size of the sticky toe pads.|
Every time I see them my brain flips back to the 1953 "War of The Worlds" movie.
|The "hand" of a dead Martian invader from the 1953 movie ... see what I mean?|
Are these really from Cuba, or are they from Olympus Mons?
One wonders ...
|To help YOU identify the Cuban, here's a size reference photo.|
They are big for tree frogs and mostly tan ... not a common color with our natives.

And finally, an extended view.
There is some yellow around the thigh and groin area.
Keep an eye out for these invaders and if you catch one, be strong and euthanize it.
You can get much more information and even send in photos for an official identification BEFORE YOU KILL A TREE FROG at this excellent University of Florida website.
...and keep watching the skies.
