First time at the dunes

Postby Aviad Bar » Thu Apr 12, 2012 3:11 pm

On Saturday I went with my daughter (one year old) and my spouse to the western Negev dunes (Israel).
We spent about an hour looking for reptile’s tracks.

The species list included:

Stenodactylus peterii

Macroprotodon cucullatos


Cerastes vipera


Stenodactylus stenodactylus
Acanthodactylus aegyptius
Acanthodactylus scutellatus
Chalcides sepsoides
Litorhinchus diadema
The must exiting observation was in the day after - a mature female of Testudo kleinmanni
