Coqui
(Eleutherodactylus
Portorricensis)

The "coquf" is a tiny tree frog,
about one inch long, native to
Puerto Rico. Its skin is smooth,
almost transparent, and its
color changes to blend
with its surroundings.


Its name derives from its
melodious song "co-key", which lulls
children and adults alike to sleep
all over the Island. Hiding in moist and
dark places during the day, it emerges
at sundown to delight us with its nightly
performance. Its song is sweetest and
most joyous after rainfall.
