Found an uninvited guest in my condo bathroom on STX today. It was a good-size frog (his body was about five inches long) hanging out on the sink. He was light green with large eyes, long legs and cool little suction cups at the ends of his toes.

Anyone know what variety this is?

aschultz, you need to put your pics on an online site like Photobucket. You can't put them here from your computer.

You guys have helped solve the puzzle. The one in my bathroom is just like the one in the shower curtain picture! Thanks for helping.

Looks like a Cuban tree frog. Don't touch the Cuban tree frogs. Their skin has a secretion that can cause a burning sensation and/or irritation to your skin. I have a great pdf file from the fish and wildlife department showing all the different frogs of the usvi.

I didn't touch the little bugger, but opted for the "smother" treatment, bagging him in a towel and releasing him to the wild. You never know--even an innocent little froggie could be dangerous.

I'd love to see your frog pdf.

Bernie pm me your email address and I will send you the pdf file. Dr. Renata provided it to me when our homeschool group did a frog walk at Magens. It is very informative.
