Cuban tree frogs are a highly-successful invasive species on St. Martin and elsewhere. Even though their tadpoles need fresh water to live in, they are able to live in relatively dry areas. One way they do this is by taking advantage of almost any available body of fresh water, even small, temporary pools. They also have a technique that helps at least some of their tadpoles mature even when their temporary pool is drying out.
Find out what it is and other adaptations that help freshwater animals survive the dry season at the Wildlife Beats workshop this Saturday at 11am at University of St. Martin. It’s part of the St. Martin Book Fair and it’s free to attend. There’s more information here: http://www.sxmwildlife.com/workshop-at-st-martin-book-fair/
