Description

Cuban Tree Frog, Bullfrog – Osteopilus septentrionalis is an amphibian native to Cuba, the Bahamas and Cayman Islands. The largest tree frog in North America, it has a rough, warty skin and toepads much larger than those of other tree frogs. Color varies from olive-brown or bronze to gray or grayish-white. It is nocturnal and sleeps above ground during the day – shown here on the Grand Cayman endemic Banana Orchid – Myrmecophila thomsoniana var. thomsoniana on a Mahogany tree – Swietenia mahagoni. Also on the tree is the Grand Cayman endemic leafless Ghost Orchid – Dendrophylax fawcettii.
