Greenhouse Frog (Eleutherodactylus planirostris)
These tiny little frogs are native to the West Indies, but are thriving as an introduced species in Florida. I found several under rocks in the front yard of my mother-in-law's house in Coral Gables.

Greenhouse Frog (Eleutherodactylus planirostris)
This little frogster was under the same front-yard rock as the one in the picture from two years ago. I'm not sure how long they live, but I doubt whether it's the same one.

Greenhouse Frog (Eleutherodactylus planirostris)
I keep turning over logs and bits of bark and coral rocks in South Florida, and startled little greenhouse frogs keep leaping out. They have very good camouflage when sitting still in the leaf litter.
