A ce moment de l'année, une hausse des températures à plus de 3° suivi dans la soirée d' une averse suffit pour déclancher le phénomène migratoire (migration prénuptiale) de milliers de grenouilles rousses et crapauds communs qui sortent de leur forêt en pleine nuit pour rejoindre les eaux qui les ont vus naître. Ils s'y reproduiront pendant quelques jours. Puis retourneront dans la forêt jusqu'à l'année prochaine. Nombreux sont ceux d'entres eux qui n'arriveront jamais à destination. Les embûches sont fréquentes et beaucoup restent sur les routes que nous fréquentons, applatis par les roues de divers véhicules indifférents. Ce petit amphibien se trouve sur la liste rouge mondiale de l'UICN (2008) et protégé par la Convention de Berne : Annexe III En France, il est sur la liste des Amphibiens et Reptiles protégés : Article 3 L'amphibien est le groupe le plus menacé au monde
