Off Topic: A Sudden Influx of Green Tree Frogs

All of a sudden, tiny Green Tree Frogs are everywhere. Well, I'm sure they were there before, but now I can't water my plants without something green flying out at me.





They're living in the orchids, and in those plastic water dishes that I keep under the bog living carnivorous plants, and in between the banana plants leaves. I screwed up a lot of tiny frog days today just trying to water.

I couldn't get a picture of it but there was also an armadillo rooting through the complex last night that we spent a good amount of time watching from the deck. I'm used to seeing all the anoles, but lately it's been like living on a different planet with everything covered in frogs. Maybe all the recent rain has washed away enough of the pesticides that's sprayed around the buildings here, so now all the fauna is coming back.

Here's to trying to rescue them from the cats!

    1. It is nice, I do like frogs and if anything I figure they're helpful eating all the insects around.

  2. These are adorable! I hope they're not harmful to any of the plants

    1. They are too cute, not harmful at all as far as I can tell. They are pretty light, so even jumping onto or off of things, nothing should be bothered, plus having more things around eating insects in never a bad thing here. Florida's got some serious insects, lol!
