Hibernating larvae of the common frog (Rana temporaria) in the Netherlands

Maarten J. Gilbert, Rémon ter Harmsel

Abstract


Hibernating larvae of the common frog (Rana temporaria) have not been reported before from the Netherlands. In this article the first reported case of hibernating larvae of Rtemporaria from the Netherlands is presented. A unique combination of uncommon weather conditions and sheltered location has likely favoured the hibernation of Rtemporaria larvae.
