Rana cf. temporaria
The "easy" and common ones are often the most tricky ones!!Definitely a "Braunfrog", Rana sp. and I think it is the common European Common Frog, Rana temporaria. There are 2 other very similar ones and I would exclude Rana dalmatina due to the shape, location and size of the tympanon. It is a rare species in Germany, but would be find in Bayern as well. The other one is Rana arvalis, Moorfrosch, which is smaller as the Grasfrosch and has usually a bright median line on the back.I cannot really judge the size of your frog. The Grasfrosch is the largest one.The longer I look at it, the more I get in trouble to really decide, that's why I put the cf. Maybe other people can help as well.I add some interesting links, which might help you to confirm...https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grasfrosch...https://www.nabu.de/tiere-und-pflanzen/a...https://www.nabu.de/tiere-und-pflanzen/a...http://www.froschnetz.ch/arten/grasfrosc...http://www.froschnetz.ch/arten/moorfrosc...http://www.froschnetz.ch/arten/springfro...http://www.landesmuseum.at/pdf_frei_remo...https://www.nabu.de/tiere-und-pflanzen/a...http://www.nabu-friedrichsdorf.de/amphib...What do you think??
