Marsh frogs

There are a couple of other species that are very similar which occur in the UK (pool and edible frogs), but at 15cm this is most likely to be a marsh frog. The colouring is also a good match for a marsh frog. Marsh frog are also the commonest Pelophylax frog in the UK.

Re: Marsh frog


This is definately a marsh frog. I am the Amphibians Officer of Surrey Amphibian and Reptile Group(SARG). Are you able to send me the record of where you found this frog please?

I can add this to the SARG database.
