Summer nights in Florida can be noisy, thanks to Florida’s abundant frog population.
Twenty-seven species of frogs are native to Florida, including several species of toads which are just a particular type of frog.
Adult frogs range in size from one to six inches and typically feed on beetles, roaches, crickets, and other small invertebrates. However, the invasive Cuban tree frog that has colonized Florida is known to eat our native tree frogs.
Learn how to tell the difference between native and invasive frogs by talking to your county Extension office.
So, keep an eye, and an ear out, for frogs this summer. You can’t miss them.
