In this photo released by the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, amphibian expert Steve Johnson shows the size difference between two female Cuban tree frogs, at his lab in Plant City – Tuesday, July 14, 2009. The larger frog is typical of the size the animal reaches in its native range in the Caribbean; the smaller specimen is typical of invasive specimens captured in Central Florida. Johnson recently published a journal article suggesting the frogs reach smaller size in colder climates, potentially reducing their negative impact in the Southeastern U.S.
