Balkan Crested Newt

The Balkan Crested Newt is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.

Frog, Marsh Frog, Grass Snake and juvenile Balkan Crested Newt were the only herps we found in the rain. More

Balkan Crested Newt, the Common Toad, the Fire-Bellied Toad, so-called because of the pretty red, yellow or orange patterns on its stomach, and the Worm Snake. My favourite find to date, was that of a Common Tree Frog. More
