Yellow-bellied toads were studied in their natural environment in a mountain locality in south-eastern Poland. In June 1981, 353 specimens were captured in a small area, marked by yellow skin autografts, and released. 49 individuals were recaptured in July 1982 in the same area, and 17 animals were recaptured at other places 200-1200 m away. Movements were carried out mainly by juveniles. Large increases in body length of young individuals, probably yearlings, and small growth rates in older individuals, were generally found.
