This little critter has been playing on my mind. I wanted to call him Mr Toad, like the character from “The Wind And The Willows”, yet he doesn’t look like a toad. In the end I had to go online and check if he was a toad or not. In fact he is a frog, but unlike many frogs he has dry skin, but it is the hind legs that give him away because they are perfectly designed for jumping.

great photo…thanks for the info…I see frogs/toads all the time and have to admit don’t know the difference!
From what i read frogs normally have smooth skin and large back legs for jumping and swimming whereas toads have drier skin usually rough with small bumps. Toads also have smaller hind legs.
I am glad you enjoyed the photo.
It is indeed a frog and my guess it is Rana arvalis but I’m not a herp man. It reminds me a lot of Gunther’s Frog that we get here – it barks like a dog!!
Gunther’s Frog is smoother skinned but otherwise close.
