Five species of amphibians live on Lesvos (of a total 25 recorded in Greece). Three of these live and circulate away from water: the European green toad (Bufotes viridis), the common toad (Bufo bufo) and the rare Syrian spacefoot (Pelobates syriacus). There are also two more frog species living in water: the Levant water frog (Pelophylax bedriagae) and the eastern tree frog (Hyla orientalis).
