      Yes, it's true - they are totally horrible. They can be like 90dB @ 5 meters. I was house shopping rencetly, and (thank god) got to one place we were looking at just at nightfall. While we were looking around, they started chirping. Needless to say, I grabbed my girl and my broker and got the hell out of there.

      Addenedum: forgot to mention, this was in town on the Hilo side.

        A good tip to remember when house hunting: check the place out at night to see what comes out in the dark. Coqui, mosquitoes, neighborhood punks, etc.

          Ok, I'm not trying to get funny here but when this came out, I was and still am personally upset, not because of the Frogs in general. However,the very next day our Legislators were spending time discussing in the practice of consuming dogs and cats. Now, am I wrong to be upset due to advocating against Illegal Activities and Drugs and find it appalling that frogs,dogs and cats take precedence over the elimination that is is rapidly destroying Hawai'i nei as a whole. There is no family that is not untouched by it's destruction. If they say they are, they're not telling the TRUTH! Frogs, eating dogs and cats? We'll be all eating them if the Drugs eventually take over the islands!

                  just hit the news; iceheads, running out of drugs now and then as they do, have found a secretion from frogs that offers a mind altering narcotic effect.

                  and in other news, possibly related, no reports of any sound or noise, from any frogs of any kinds, anywhere, for some unknown reason.

                        one or two coqui isn't a problem, three or four is quite entertaining, 200 to 300 is enough to put a gun to your head!

                        I say we catch em all and send them back to Puerto Rico where they love the sound of them little pests, and we can send them our B-52 roaches as well.

                        Imagine a 3-year old saying Co-Key with an emphasis on Key then imagine an entire pre-school of 3-year olds saying that right outside your bedroom window from sundown to sun up. Pretty soon it sounds like a bunch of kids yelling and screaming at the top of their lungs forever and I mean Forrrrrreeeeeeeeeevvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Then the sun comes up and the Myna Birds take over.

                        The only good sound out of a Coqui frog is the sound of their chirp when you squish one with your big black rubbah sliippah!
                        Life is what you make of it...so please read the instructions carefully.
