StampNews.com is glad to inform our readers that Croatian Post Ltd. Mostar issued four commemorative frogs stamps as a part of special series Fauna 2016.
The stamps feature four different species of frog. Frogs belong to the family of amphibians that consist of freshwater and inland vertebrates, but differ from other amphibians by their tailless bodie. Let’s appreciate these four special items together!
The Greek frog (Rana graeca) lives in temperate forests, mountainous and highland pastureland near colder rivers and brooks. Their body colors are adapted to their environment and are usually in yellow, red, olive or gray colored shades and have spots all over them.
The European fire-bellied toad (Bombina bombina) lives in water habitats of clear still waters or slow streams in lowland areas. Their body color variates from green to light green and their top sides are spotted with dark spots, while their belly color variates from orange do bright red with dark patterns.
The Yellow-bellied toad (Bombina variegata) settles in all sorts of still waters all across middle and southeast Europe. Their top sides are greyish–brown to dark olive color, and their bellies and extremities are yellow with black spots.
The Moor frog (Rana arvalis) settles in moist meadows and swamp lands. Their skin is smooth, greyish, yellowish or brown, while their bellies are bright and without spots.aniani
