Hi guys,

Well the recent thread about lack of posts/forum trends certainly did the trick didn't it?! Some great new posts since then - thanks all.



Anyway, cast yer peepers over this frog said to have been found yesterday in Cardiff. Agree with Amadan's comment that despite the seeming lack of pigment, this is not an albino.
Some other condition effecting pigmentation?

Is it even R temporaria? Some characteristics suggest it could be, but hard to say from that single pic.
Photo looks genuine.

Doesn't look healthy as already said and could be almost anything! Pity the pic doesn't show the toes - that might help a bit

Thanks chaps.

Even if it survives for now, it's hugely disadvantaged by standing out like the proverbial sore thumb.
