Herpetofauna (3): Frogs in the Peloponnese
A number of frogs like this one were enjoying the lily pads ...
They were actually pretty camouflaged in the dappled sunlight and shade, and we only realised they were there when presumably they heard us walking by and leaped off their 'sunbeds' into the water.
Guess who ruled the roost in this pond!
I am wondering if they were examples of the Epirus Water Frog (Pelophylax epeiroticus) - or at least the frog in the top photo. We were staying near Pylos, in the region of the beautiful lagoon at Yialova.
