    Thank you very much in advance



    I am thinking it is actually a toad , a Southern Toad to be precise or a Fowler's Toad

    Can't see the photo (site's probably blocked at work). I'm going to shoot in the dark here though, (literally) and call it a Cuban Tree Frog . Everytime I see "help me ID this frog" threads it ends up being those, especially from Florida. Maybe someone can come in and confirm and see if I was right.

    I'm unsure what frog this is, but I did find a good website on the frogs found in Florida (it also has their pictures). Here's the link:
    Florida Wildlife Extension at UF/IFAS

    Hope this helps!

    My guess is it's a toadlet if you found this on land.

    Get a face shot and side on shot would be easier to tell.

    It's some species of toad for sure. I dunno what toads live in the FL keys, so you'll have to do some research on your own.

    Salamanders: 1.1 Ambystoma tigrinum tigrinum | 1.1 Ambystoma mavortium melanostictum
    Snakes: 0.0.1 Lampropeltis calligaster calligaster
    Chow: Roaches (11 species) | Springtails | Terrestrial Isopods | Vinegar Eels | Gammarus | Guppies

    Googling Native Toads of Florida the Fowler's Toad is a native from the state, so I would agree that it's a Fowler's Toad. I had one I caught in my back yard, but he passed away this past Winter.
