Some shoots from northern Sardinia,July 2017

Postby Massimo Trentin » Mon Jul 31, 2017 8:13 pm

Just back from summer holidays spent in Northern Sardinia.
I was with my family (wife & two daughters) so...almost no time for herping ,just some pics of the very common P.tiliguerta.
Be patient...I'm not a good photographer :oops: .

Seems like P.siculus is more present around houses,garden and "urban enviroments" (sorry..no pics) but less present than tiliguerta,that is far more abundant but in wilder enviroment.
At least,that's what I noticed.. ;)

Thanks Ruggero...no viridiflavus sadly :|
I only saw a Testudo (don't know if graeca or hermanni) crossing a trafficated coastal road. Time to stop my car as soon as possible to rescue it and a lady on a car coming from the other side just did what I was going to do...took her and ,after givin' her a clean with her t-shirt (you know, the tortoise couldn't stay dirt :D ),released her beyond a stone wall :D .
That's all I saw but tlilguerta.

Ah... Gotta love Sardinia... In that area, chances for hermanni or marginata are way higher than for graeca, as far as I know.
