𝘼𝙢𝙥𝙡𝙚𝙭𝙪𝙨, ou la manière de se reproduire de certains Anoures

Bufo bufo
 
Fin février la saison des amours commence pour les
Crapauds communs.
Le mâle, beaucoup plus petit part à la recherche d'une femelle au bord des points d'eau pour s'accoupler. Il grimpe sur le dos de l'élue et la tient très serrée, surtout quand un autre mâle tente de l'évincer. Lorsque la femelle lâche ses œufs dans l'eau, le mâle lâche son sperme simultanément pour les fertiliser.
Ce mode de reproduction s'appelle l'amplexus.
Ces quelques photos datent d'il y a 6 ans, prises dans mon étang que je n'ai plus hélas.


Amplexus, or the way some batracians breed

For the Common toads
the mating season starts end of February 

The male, much smaller leaves his winter hide to look for a female along the edges of ponds to mate. He climbs on the back of a female and holds her very tight, especially when another male tries to grab her too. When she lays her eggs in the water, the male releases his sperm simultaneously to fertilize them.
This
reproduction mode is called amplexus.
These few photos date from six years ago, taken at my lake (that unfortunately I no longer own).

  1. Dearest Noushka,
    Glad you at least have the photos to keep the memories of your prior property.
    In Indonesia in the huge garden and pond behind our bungalow, I've managed to make a video of frogs mating. Also three on top of each other.
    We have lots of frogs in our big pond, all varieties and I love their concert!
    Hugs and stay safe,
    Mariette
