Life cycle of amphibians in Provence

Introduction: Amphibies

The Mediterranean tree frog (Hyla meridionalis).

The Mediterranean tree frog (Hyla meridionalis Boettger, 1874) resembles the European tree frog (Hyla arborea Linné, 1758), but is larger (some females are up to 65 millimetres (2.6 in) long), has longer hind legs, and the flank stripe only reaches to the front legs (often starting at the eyes, not at the nostrils). The croaking resembles that of H. arborea, but it is deeper and slower. This frog is found in southern France, northern Italy (only Liguria), southern Portugal, Spain (from Catalonia to Andalusia), Menorca, and Madeira. (Wikipedia)
