REAL LIFE FROG POOP PROBLEM:

Although frogs in this selection of short stories have been treated with some humor and a little bit of reverence, there exists a present, very serious threat to Florida's native, harmless frogs. That is the result of the invasion of the Cuban treefrog which are now, according to University of Florida Extension Service, flourishing after two dry years.  

Able to produce as many as 15,000 eggs in one season and growing to six inches long, these frogs invade transformer boxes, power switches inside power poles, causing expensive blackouts and repairs. Not to mention the fecal deposits they leave. Even more alarming is the destructive effects on native species of amphibians and reptiles.
