Suburban Wildlife 2
Cuban Tree frog, on the screen to my back porch. It's an invasive, and the recommendation is that we catch them, put them in a bag and then in the freezer. I have a hard time doing that, so I'll try to break the reproductive chain instead. I'll make sure all the eggs in the pond laid during their orgies are killed. It's like friggin' Calligula out there when they're gettin' it on, but their egg masses are pretty distinctive, so either the fish eat 'em or I'll start scooping 'em out. It's free plant food, right?
I don't want to mess with the eggs of the other frogs that use our pond, so I'll have to scoop 'em quick. We do have a few native species that use our little pond for their procreative needs.
She's cute, though, huh?
