European green toad

Bufo viridis


The spots on their backs range from green to dark brown and sometimes red too.Underside vary from white to very lightly color. They will change their color in response to heat and light changes, but to a greater degree than others. Female toads are larger than males.


Species of toad found in mainland Europe, and Egypt. They live in many areas, including steppes, mountainous areas, semi-deserts, and urban areas. This one I found in the car park close to the beach after rainy night.
