The Coqui Frog came to Hawaii by accident around 1990. It is suspected that it arrived on plants from another area. Unlike the frogs in Puerto Rico, the Coqui Frog has no native predators to keep down the population. So, not only is the Coqui Frog population growing at an extremely rapid rate, but they are also eating tens of thousands of insects, including some crickets which included species found only in Hawaii.
Can there possibly any other bad news about this tiny frog? How about the male voice which he uses at night to attract females, and reaches decibels equal to the level of a vacuum cleaner—Wow!
