Pseudepidalea viridis (Crapaud Vert)

Synonyms: Bufo viridis

Wikipedia Abstract

The European green toad (Bufo viridis) is a species of toad found in mainland Europe. They live in many areas, including steppes, mountainous areas, semi-deserts, and urban areas. They comprise at least 12 major evolutionary lineages, and there are variations in the colors and patterns of these toads across their range. The spots on their backs are usually anything from green to dark brown and sometimes red spots appear, too. Most toads have white or very lightly colored stomachs.
