Provence amphibian: the mediterranean tree frog

Description of a mediterranean tree frog

A mediterranean tree frog is 6.5-cm-long in average.

Its skin is soft (there’s no warts unlike toads).

The skin of a mediterranean tree frog is usually vibrant green, but you can also come accross yellowish or even brownish ones (and even blue in case of depigmentation)

Unlike the common tree frog, the mediterranean tree frog doesn’t have any dark line along its flanks.

Fingers and toes wear suction cups.

Mediterranean tree frogs might be a bit translucent (mostly around their fingers and toes).
