    Have you ever wondered why frog calls travel so far? The reason is that they have thin membranes, called vocal sacs, on the sides of their heads. These sacs are sort of like resonating chambers that amplify sound. A calling frog closes its mouth and then expels air from its lungs into its vocal sacs, which causes its larynx to vibrate thus producing a sound that gets amplified in the sacs. It’s pretty impressive when you consider that a tiny frog’s call can be heard at least a mile away. {Pelophylax lessonae spotted in the Netherlands by Roeselien Raimond} #Vocalsacs #Pelophylaxlessonae

The Pool Frog is a European frog. It is one of only four amphibian species recognized by the UK government as protected under its Biodiversity Action Plan. The reasons for declining populations are decreased pond habitat from human encroachment and also air pollution leading to over-nitrification of pond waters. Its specific name was chosen by the Italian herpetologist Lorenzo Camerano in order to honour his master Michele Lessona.
