Greenhouse Frog (Eleutherodactylus planirostris)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Greenhouse Frog (Eleutherodactylus planirostris)

Terrestrial Frog. Exotic (native to Cuba) likely introduced to U.S. through trade. Threat to natives probably minimal as it has natural enemies in snakes. I found this one burrowed inside a crate that was holding some potting soil bags to start my winter veggies.

Diet: Ants, beetles, other tiny invertebrates
