Amphibians identification

Identify frogs, toads and newts.

Learn about life cycles with our handy guide! Use it to spot the different stages of amphibian life:

  • Look in ponds and slow-moving streams
  • Spot eggs in clumps, strings and carefully wrapped around water plants
  • Tadpoles come in different shapes, sizes and colours – can you identify them?

Eggs, tadpoles and young amphibians appear at different times, so keep your eyes peeled throughout spring and summer!
