LOL I noticed very small ones here and there around the outside of my lania and the freaking little frogs inside the lania after the rains. How they get in, I have no idea. Some little frogs end up swimming in the pool. Bast@#ds. Never had them before until this past fall.

Wow Fla gets hit with all the invasive stuff!! That thing was nasty!!
And Ric, I believe they said it had a worm inside that causes meningitis, so no it's not eatable.

Throw them on the grill and that worm gets cooked real well.

In Edit

You would be surprised at what People native to my birth place eat. Try Spider and half incubated eggs that are boiled with a half grown embryo just to name a few.
