Additional note :

The site where I recorded those marvelous amphibians is nowadays A FUCKING RESTRICTED PRIVATE HUNTING RESERVE.
This site was chosen as Natura2000 locations (European preserved natura area), I thought it could preserve from such initiative... But the site was a private land, and apparently nowadays it is managed by a family of people who put fences and miradors all around, organizing commercial safaris inside. :-(
