Frogs and Toads of Ireland
Ireland only has one frog species and one toad species, making it a pretty crappy place to go froggin.
The Natterjack toad (Epidalea calamita) is the only toad species native to Ireland. The Natterjack toad is listed as endangered in Ireland but with the help of conservationists, they are making a come back.
European Common Brown Frog (Rana temporaria) is the only frog species native to Ireland. It can sometimes be confused with toads because of their brown color but the European Common Brown Frog doesn’t have dry, warty skin.
