Frog

Rana temporaria

Listen to the sounds:

This is Ireland's best know amphibian. Its colouring varies from green-brown to olive green, sometimes with spots or blotches on the skin. Frog spawn is seen in ponds in March and April. Males produce a good croaking sound. Frogs live for 3 to 4 years in the wild with exceptions achieving 7 years (Gibbons and McCarthy).
