Agile Frog

Agile Frog - Rana dalmatina
Brown (or grass) frog with slim body and usually pointed snout. The dorsal region varies in colour from reddish brown to pink and has a dark V shaped mark between the shoulders. The head also bears black areas and has a white line at the tip of the snout. The belly is whitish and the groin region yellowish. The males are normally smaller than the females, which can be 9 cm long. An Amphibian typically connected to woodland plains; it can resist low humidity levels and most of the year leads a terrestrial life. It only goes to the water during the breeding period, which is usually spring. It prefers stagnant waters, rich in vegetation, where the female lays on average 1,500-2,000 eggs in a single mass. The tadpoles complete metamorphosis in 3 months; adults reach sexual maturity in their third year of life. The Agile Frog feeds mainly on arthropods.
