Lough Yganavan

Ireland»Munster»Lough Yganavan

Lough Yganavan Nature Reserve, which covers approximately one quarter of this shallow, low-lying lake, is an important habitat for Irelands rarest amphibian; the Natterjack Toad. This endangered species has a very limited distribution; its stronghold being a few sandy coastal sites in Co. Kerry. The Natterjack Toad has a distinctive yellow stripe down its back. It runs in short bursts, rather that hopping as a frog would. By day it shelters under stones and at dusk ventures out to feed on insects. The Natterjack Toad hibernates in winter and breeds during the spring and summer.
