Common British Frogs 

The adult common frog has a body length of 6 to 9 centimetres (2.4 to 3.5 in) its back and flanks varying in colour from olive green to grey-brown, brown, olive brown, grey, yellowish and rufous. However, it can lighten and darken its skin to match its surroundings. Some individuals have more unusual colouration — both black and red individuals have been found in Scotland, and albino frogs have been found with yellow skin and red eyes.During the mating season the male common frog tends to turn greyish-blue (see video below). The average weight is 22.7 g (0.80 oz); the female is usually slightly larger than the male.
