Taiwan is an ecologically diverse island; however, with the exchange of goods from various countries, foreign species inevitably find their way into the country. The spot-legged tree frog, which is native to southern China, Hainan Island, and the Indochina Peninsula, is thought to have been introduced into Taiwan along with imported horticultural flowers. A highly competitive frog species and rapid breeder, the spot-legged tree frog can hunt any species smaller than itself and eats a large number of native frogs in Taiwan, which has caused a significant decline in native species. To date, spot-legged tree frogs have spread along the entire western half of Taiwan.

However, as spot-legged tree frogs look very similar to our native tree frogs, Polypedates braueri, it is best not to capture them yourself and instead inform the relevant authorities for assistance. With the influx of foreign species threatening the survival of native species and hence Taiwan's ecological balance, it is something everyone should be concerned about.

以下為中文對照

臺灣雖是個島嶼,卻是個生態多樣、物種豐富的寶島。但隨著各國貨物的往來,外來種也因此被夾帶進入台灣。斑腿樹蛙原生地於華南、海南島、中南半島等地區,專家推測為進口園藝花卉時夾帶引入台灣。斑腿樹蛙擁有極強競爭力及繁殖力,可以獵食比自己體型小的所有物種,並大量獵食台灣本土青蛙,造成本土種數量大幅下降。目前斑腿樹蛙分佈範圍已擴及整個西半部地區。

如果發現疑似斑腿樹蛙的行蹤,可以依此進行辨識,但因與本土布氏樹蛙相似度高,故不建議自行將其捕捉,可以通報相關單位進行協助。外來種的侵入迫害原生種的生存空間,如何保育原生種並維持生態平衡,是每一個人都該重視的課題。
