Its breeding season is in the end of spring extending to the early summer. It selects medium mountainous river, water flowing slowly, and with many big stones in the bottom. It deposits her eggs adhere on the upper surface of the stone. On the other hand, the reproductive habits of all the known wood frogs found in China are much different from Huanren wood frog. The breeding season of other wood frog species are in late autumn or early winter. They select rice-field which full with water, small pond in hill or mountainous region with silent water, or, even there is inflow mouth and outflow mouth, but the brook flowed sluggishly. And they deposit their eggs floating on the water surface.
