The dark spots vary in size and shape, and the number and shape allows one to distinguish discrete phenotypes. The breeding season in central Belarus usually falls in the middle of April after the air temperature rises to 10–12oC, in various types of wetlands (Fig.

One clutch contains up to 2300 eggs. 5 mm. Larvae form aggregations (Fig. 18). Tadpoles in later stages of development have a typical middorsal stripe (Fig. 19).

5 months and the first metamorphs move onto land usually in the middle to end of June. In the region of our studies, the Common Frog inhabits a variety of natural and modified wood, meadow, moor and floodplain habitats. However, in comparison with the Moor Frog, this species has higher humidity requirements that, apparently, effect its habitat distribution and diurnal activity. The Common Frog in Belarus occurs mainly in humid woods. The species is distributed unevenly. In gallery alder forests and oak woods the average level of density reaches 550 specimens/ha but on lowland meadows only 120 specimens/ha.
