Default ID this amphibian

I've never seen one of these around here, can anyone ID this thing?

It's not one of those poisonous frogs that gets to be the size of a dinner plate and kills pets, etc. is it?

I am also curious, I have a picture of the same frog on my phone. I took the picture here in Hattiesburg, Ms. I found the frog sitting an I-beam about 30 feet in the air. The frog was app 2" wide and 4+" long.... it was huge.

You are thinking of this -

I have never seen what you posted, but give it a lick and see if you trip out....

A Barking tree frog - who wudda thought

Call the dog warden if he gets too loud

I was gonna guess a F__k you lizard which were common in the jungles of nam as they used to answer F__k you when the ReeUp birds sang RE_UP! (the sound sactually did closely mimic those words) - and as you FL guys and Geico customers probably know this is a Gecko.....

Sweet. I knew someone would find it. He hung out in the same spot all day, never moved. He's huge for a tree frog.
