A new generation of Marsh frog has arrived - tiny frogs: on pics N° 1 to 4, these two were about 15 mm in length; the one on pic 5 was a bit bigger, 22 to 25 mm; and finally, I guess an adult on a click N° 6 - looked liked a well formed adult; over 5cm in length, rather 6 to 7... All of these were of the same dark green color with darker, blackish blotches on backs. However, the presence and the visibility of dorsal lines not the same.
Marsh frog is native to Europe, and widespread within its range. It is water-dwelling, and can be seen around lakes, rivers, ponds or marshes. In my experience, this must be the most common and widely present frog in our area - I've seen them in every pond or marsh here.
