F is for frogs
One of my favorite frogs is the little green native tree frog here in Florida.. We had a few at our home in the country, though the big, brown Cuban tree frogs are displacing them. Btw, the excrement of those big frogs is really icky and requires a lot of work to clean it up, so you know they are definitely not my favorite tree frog! We haven't seen any here in town; we do have anoles, though they're mostly brown. Again the big guys are displacing the beautiful green anoles that are native. (They're often called chameleons, but they're not the real chameleon, which are the ones with the eyes that swivel.) My other favorite tree frog is the White's tree frog from Australia. They come in green, blue, and brown, and we had several over the years: Sydney, Tazi, Kiri, Yampi, and Kiwi.
