Kiskunság National Park, Hungary


Amphibians are abound with great variety in Kiskunság National Park due to the wide range of different habitats from alkaline lakes through freshwater lakes, the neighbouring 2 largest rivers of Hungary, River Danube and River Tisza, oxbow lakes, channels, dykes and ponds. We have plenty of species each year even in our garden at our large pond.

The following is an uncomplete list of species you can encounter during your visit even in our garden:

Common Spadefoot Toad - Pelobates fuscus

An unique toad in a separate family represented by just this species, often buries itself easily in our sandy soil at Ecotours Kondor EcoLodge Garden, not always easy to find

Common Toad - Bufo bufo

Although we have them in the garden they are outnumbered by Green Toads

Green Toad - Bufo viridis

Quite common in the garden, especially at our pond

Fire-bellied Toad - Bombina bombina

You can regularly hear its call, "unk, unk, unk" from our Garden Pond.

Common Tree Frog - Hyla arborea

Also a lonely member of its family in Europe, but quite vocal in the Garden during certain periods

Marsh Frog - Rana ridibunda

The only one which is possible at nearby wetlands, but have not found yet in the garden
