The Moor Frog very much resembles the European Common Frog. Distinctive features include the bubbling call of the males and their bluish colour.
Moor Frogs populate various habitats with a high ground water level, e.g. carrs, wet meadows, silted-up sectors of larger water bodies and raised bogs. For reproduction they usually prefer shallow waters that warm up quickly. However, they have to have enough water for the tadpoles to be able to fully develop.
In highly acidic waters, as can appear in raised bogs, the spawns become affected by fungi and die. Since reaping machines tend to kill a high percentage of frogs during the mowing of wet meadows, extensive grazing is extremely beneficial for the Moor Frog. Conservation measures have to concentrate on creating shallow water bodies, securing - or restoring - of higher ground water levels, and a sensible use of terrestrial habitats.
