Hello all,

I just came back from a birdwatching tour in Romania, and i found a frog that i can't identify...
It was in the Mount Macin, north of Tulcea.
Perhaps someone can help me?

I found it in a little stream in the center of the second picture.

I'd say ridibundus too.

Thank you for your answers,

Unfortunatly it is the only picture i made...
I think ridibundus, but for me it is an unusual habitat compared to the one i find them here in France...that's why i had doubts.

At least in Bulgaria (and I assume it's the same in Romania) ridibundus can be found in literally any habitat that has water - from puddles and ditches, small streams, ponds to big rivers and lakes; from sea level to high in the mountains.
