Pelophylax lessonae #3

Posted by Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 28 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.
