|I am not good with frogs. I believe this to be rana arvalis but as I saw on the net the males should be blue...and as indulgent as I am there was no blue frog. |
I found them in a sunny pool by the river. I did not notice any sack to tell you wether there were two or one. The eggs were deposited in balls, not in strings.
I will go back and take more photos.
I just posted this one so you can see the amount of eggs frogs lay to ensure the species survival. All the black dots around the frogs are eggs. Lots of them will die even before hatching. Many more will die after hatching falling prey to birds, other frogs, fish and many more predators. Frogs ensure the survival of the species through quantity.
