Levant water frog

A fully aquatic frog that spends its entire life in water, rarely coming to the surface

Guy Haimovitch

Southern Europe is where the Levant Water Frog species originated. They have dark markings on their backs and range in hue from green to brown. They are invasive species, spend a lot of time in the water, and are not harmful, but the requirement for freshwater habitats constrains their range.

The frog is still pretty big even though it is not dangerous. Males are larger than females, and both sexes have relatively large feet with webbing between the toes in relation to their relative body sizes. Their food consists primarily of terrestrial species, with a few aquatic creatures.
