Invasive species threaten Florida
In 2003, Matthew Segal shows a Cuban tree frog, a species that is invading Florida. The species hitchhiked on plant imports into the Miami area in the early 1950s and spread to Central Florida within a few decades. Cuban tree frogs don't easily tolerate cold but have invaded the Panhandle as far as Leon County. They eat native tree frogs.
