Amphibians

Marshes are home to Italian tree frogs, other frogs and toads, particularly the European green toad. Rare Apennine yellow-bellied toads can also be found in the temporary puddles that form after spring showers. Some biotopes of stagnant water are home to Alpine newts and smooth newts; the fire salamander is very common and widespread in cool forest undergrowth, near springs and streams.
