Is the lizard in the last pic holding paws in this way in order to get better insolation?

are not these tadpoles too greenish and brownish to be Bufo spinosus instead of Bufotes viridis?

No, and I think you mean Epidalea calamita.

So what species they are? I thought that brownish, grey and greenish are tadpoles of Bufotes viridis only.

There's a new book that says colour is unreliable in tadpoles.
From experience, I'd say these are spinosus, but I'm not betting anything on it.
