Singing Frog Symphony

Large arrow left

Do you hear those little critters making all that noise on your first night in Puerto Rico? Hard to believe it all comes from this tiny little frog.

Many folks mistake it for birds, but it's in fact this little brown tree frog that lights up the night with a beautiful, melodic chirping that is now responsible for lulling me to sleep.

In fact, when I leave the island for a period of time, I find it difficult to fall asleep without this frog's music.

It's difficult to find them at night, but during the day you can find them hiding under leaves, in the crevices of plants or items hanging up outside, like hammocks.
