                                                COMMON FROG Rana temporaria

 

         This rather splendid Common Frog Rana temporaria appeared to have been very well fed! Amphibians are becoming increasingly threatened for all sorts of reasons including some rather unpleasant bacterial diseases that have been increasing their geographical ranges due to global warming but pressure from property developers, the cavalier use of so many toxic substances without any consideration for the environmental consequences and genetic isolation due to habitat loss cannot possibly help their plight. Any assistance from altruistic gardeners will be welcomed.
