    The lake frog is the most widespread species. It inhabits numerous ducts, eriki, ilmeni, kultuki; significantly less common in the forefront. In hibernation, frogs lie in large clusters. For this, ponds with good flow are needed. Frogs wake up from hibernation at the end of March. In early April, frogs form mass clusters along the banks of reservoirs. A few days before this, the first marital cries are noted. At the end of April, frogs move to ilmeni and voles. Here they start spawning. In warmed shallow water, clutch of eggs appears. In one clutch there are 8-10 incryns. After a week, tadpoles appear. In early August, tadpoles migrate to permanent reservoirs.
