Oh I wish. But I do love frogs and this little guy is so interesting.

What a gorgeous froggy, kudzu! Is he a local or from the Amazon or someplace like that? Poisonous tree frog? Thanks for the pic!

I haven't a clue what kind of frog he is but probably from South America. I googled "cute little red eyed frog" but strangely nothing came up. I might send the picture to my nature expert step son and if he knows I'll post it here.

National Geographic says about this little cutie .........

Red-eyed tree frogs, despite their conspicuous coloration, are not venomous. They are found in tropical lowlands from southern Mexico, throughout Central America, and in northern South America. Nocturnal carnivores, they hide in the rain forest canopy and ambush crickets, flies, and moths with their long, sticky tongues.

Thanks Dallas, good to know he isn't venomous. I've probably seen him in an exhibit or zoo somewhere before but I can't claim this photo as my own.
