Invader in the Garden

An invasive and, in this case, exotic looking juvenile Cuban Treefrog seems to have found a comfortable home at the Oslo Riverfront Conservation Area (ORCA).

Expert at outcompeting our Florida frogs, their varied coloration can make them look similar to some of our native Florida species.
