  Where to Look for Coqui Frogs
Coqui frogs often perch on twigs, in leaf whorls and folds, between two leaves, in folded or curled leaves, in leaf axils, or in dead leaves hanging from the plant. They are often found on broad-leaved plants, but they will use any leaf that will support their weight and provide cover. Adult frogs tend to be 3–9 feet off the ground, especially calling males, and the juveniles are usually at lower heights (below 4 feet).
