Hi, I have this question about the people here who fieldherp in Romania. I've been in the Delta, Portile de Fier, Brasov, Bucegi,walking through forests, but never seen an adder. It's the first on my herping whishlist. So, do you know any good place around Arges?

Hello Petreanu,

Perhaps you need a little more chance and training...
I found both species in the Delta and around Mont Macin within five days without prospecting a lot (bird-watching trip)...
Keep herping, you will find some for sure!

Rule/suggestion/tip No 1: Don't look for them IN the forests, search at their rims instead. Adders need sunshine as well as shelter. At the forest edge they get both.
