West Iberian Painted Frog

Discoglossus galganoi


It is found in Portugal and Spain. Its natural habitats are temperate forests, temperate shrubland, Mediterranean-type shrubby vegetation, rivers, intermittent rivers, swamps, freshwater marshes, intermittent freshwater marches, sandy shores, arable land, and pastureland. Found under a waterfall in a Mediterranean Shrubland.


It is threatened by habitat loss. And yes, they weren't at all amused by our invasion of their breeding grounds, despite the purpose of our visit was to remove the plastic where their tadpoles were swimming.
