The AGILE FROG is a medium sized, slender frog with proportionately long hind legs. Females can reach 6-8 cm, the males can reach 5-6 cm length form the tip of their snout to the cloaca. The snout is lot more pointed than that of the common frog. When the hind leg's shin is bent forward at the knee-joint the heel-joint is stretching well in front of the snout. Its dorsal colouration is light brown or drab, sometimes with darker blotches or a mottled pattern. Its tympanum is smaller than that of the common frog, and situated closer to the eyes. Hind limbs have around 10 visible, darker transversal bands. The belly is whitish; sometimes with a hue of pink or yellow, and contrarily to the common frog, it is unicoloured. The transition between dorsal and ventral colouration is gradual. The sides are dun or sometimes shaded with some light yellow.
