Pelophylax lessonae #2

Posted by Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 27 July 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Pelophylax lessonae (NL: Poelkikker, Kleine groene kikker / EN: Pool Frog / DE: Kleiner Wasserfrosch / FR: Petite grenouille verte, Grenouille de Lessona) is a European frog. The reasons for declining populations are decreased pond habitat from human encroachment and also air pollution leading to over-nitrification of pond waters. Its specific name was chosen by the Italian herpetologist Lorenzo Camerano in order to honour his master Michele Lessona.

Schitterend in zijn eenvoud, prachtige kleuren. Ik zou de lichte vlek bovenaan links wegknippen dan komt de kikker nog meer op de voorgrond. :)
