The Common frog lives out of water almost all of the year but returns to water in the spring to breed. Male frogs will usually try to return to the pond that they metamorphosed from as tadpoles.
The only species likely to be confused with the Common frog on University of Manchester campus is the Common toad. The toad has much bumpier skin (giving it a warty appearance), which is also drier in appearance and touch. Toads are also much more likely to crawl than jump.Record a sighting
