New amphibian species in Dutch nature reserve


This is a video of common newts and juvenile natterjack toads, crawling out of the water in Schiermonnikoog, the Netherlands.

Traditionally, there used to be six amphibian species in nature reserve Meijendel, north of The Hague in the Netherlands.

Four of those are toads and frogs:edible frog, common frog, Eurasian toad, and natterjack toad.

Also two newt species, the common newt and the great crested newt, are traditional Meijendel denizens.

Recently, two other species joined them.

They are the common Eurasian spadefoot toad; and the common tree frog.
