Coqui Eggs for Breakfast?

I woke up this morning and saw this little pile of goo on top of a garbage bag outside my place.

Upon closer examination, I’m going to assume they are were coqui eggs.

  1. Yuk! We live on the kipuka in our neighborhood – or the coqui nursery as it’s called. I heard from a friend if you take a pot – like a black plastic type planter pot – medium sized deeper kine – and spray the inside with WD40, put something in the bottom they like – they will jump in and can’t climb back out. We are going to try it at our place and see how it works. Seems like a good way to catch and release or eliminate them.
    I’ll let you know how it works.

    I have nothing against them, except they are so prolific and reproduce like crazy. What started out as a few has blossomed into a thousand. Now they are coming up and around the house. I don’t mind when they are out in the jungle. They shouldn’t be here – they are not indigenous to this area. There are no predators. They will continue to expand exponentially. And, there are so many at this point, thinning the population is not a bad idea.

    • My Name is Lars and I live in Uppsala, Sweden. One of my interests is poison dartfrogs. I have 17 of them in a rainforest terrarium at home. I am very interested in how to get hold of some coqui eggs. I think they would make an excellent addition to my little jungle. Shipping frogs overseas is perhaps hard on them but I guess eggs can handle the trip fine.
      Anyone have any ideas how I could get hold of some coquieggs?

  2. Damon,

    They sure are Coqui eggs, I sure hope that you didn’t harm those little guys. That is equivalent to giving a friendly little frog an abortion. If you did, I’m walking up and down in front of your house carrying a sigh saying:

    BEWARE, DAMON TUCKER IS A
    PRO CHOICE ABORTIONIST AND
    SHOULD BE TARRED AND FEATHERED,
    AND RUN OUT OF TOWN ON A RAIL.

    Save the Coqui’s should be something that Emily could put into law this year
