The European green toad is a very heat-tolerant amphibian: it can survive temperatures of as much as 40°C (104°F). That’s not all; it is also quite tolerant of desiccation. The death of this hardy amphibian occurs when its body loses nearly 50% of its water which is quite unorthodox to the usual concept of amphibians which must keep their skin moist.
These frogs move to water only during the breeding season and spend most of their time hiding underground in their natural range’s semi-desert and mountainous areas, which expand from France and Denmark to western Russia and the Balkans.
