Frogs jamieharrop2016-08-26T09:32:00+01:00August 26th, 2016|0 Comments Our garden is literally hopping with this year’s tiny frogs, but can anyone tell me how to judge the age of older frogs (we have just one in the garden) like the one in this picture? Is it 1 year old – or 10? I’d love to know! Charlotte No Comments Steve Blacksmith August 27, 2016 at 10:01 pm - Reply I did a search on this interesting question, and it seems it's hard to know the answer, but anecdotal evidence gives this information for a native frog: Rana temporaria European Common FrogLIT.d 12 Years. Gender unknown, acquired date unknown. K. Curry-Lindahl, in Biegler 1966. (I think this means at least 12 years.) Another site stated that a European Toad had been kept for 40 years!

I'll have to hold a party for it! 14 froglets hopping about yesterday late afternoon – 5 of them came into the porch.
