Leptodactylid Frogs: Leptodactylidae - Leptodactylid Frogs And People

hawaii

People hunt a few of the larger leptodactylid frogs for food and sometimes collect them and some of the pretty smaller species for the pet trade. Introduced coqui frogs have made the news in Hawaii. Hidden inside plants shipped to Hawaii from their native lands, coquis have found their new home to be a good place to live and raise families, but some people there are less pleased with the new arrivals. They complain about the male frogs' loud mating calls.
