DESCRIPTION: I decided to depict the Rana temporaria, an amphibian kind of true frogs (Rana) the family of true frogs (Ranidae). This animal is medium-scale, has a typical frog's species, lifestyle and behaviour.
Rana temporaria is common, we can observe it very often all over Europe, but it is need to know that this animal is inscribed in Annex III of CITES (category "the species to be protected") and the Red Data Book of IUCN.
Most of all this frog eats flies, mosquitoes and snails and I depicted it also.
