Invasive populations of anurans contribute to global amphibian declines, and many instances involve pipid frogs. Here we report on an invasive population of Pipa parva in Carabobo State, and a native population in Zulia State, Venezuela. The frogs were found in high densities in a fish farm near Lake Valencia, and had a diet of benthic invertebrates. Invasive P. parva were large compared to those described in previous reports (mean snout-vent length: 37.34±0.73 mm), but the native population was found to be significantly longer (mean snout-vent length: 44.08±1.34 mm). Colonisation by terrestrial movement and potential impact of this invasive species are discussed.
