Sahara Frog - Pelophylax saharicus

This species is widely distributed (but with fragmented populations due to patchy available habitat) from northwestern Western Sahara, through Morocco, Ceuta and Melilla (Spain), Algeria (south to the Hoggar Massif), Tunisia, northern Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and northwestern Egypt (Siwa Oasis only). It has been introduced in Gran Canaria, Spain. The species has an altitudinal range of sea level to 2,670m asl.

It is mostly confined to montane and wetland areas within its range. The species is largely aquatic, being found in and around streams, oasis pools, irrigation canals, lakes and other waterbodies. Eggs are deposited in water. It is not known whether or not the species can occur in modified habitats.

Hello Iulian,
your capture is so lively with green details and rough surface on its back. The light is very helpful in defining the view.
how difficult in my place to shoot a frog during the day.
The dark shiny eye is lovely.
Well presented shot.


Awesome capture of this beauty Iulian!
