Booby..

A great report.. nice to see sun and salamanders.. and a clean sweep.. I am so CDO( OCD in the right order) It warms my cockles to see a completed tick list..

I had a good perusal of your website.. loved it.. even if a lot of the trip reports were in some bibily bong language... :D

Cheers Paul

Hey there,

I feel there is nothing to add to Bobbys trip report, love it! However, if some of you fancy a different perspective on things, crave some more salamander porn, or just can´t get enough of the Turkish herpetofauna, here you are:

We only missed Salamandra infraimmaculata, but we knew that one would be hard to find at this place and this time of year.



My mistake, I meant Lyciasalamdra targets :lol:

I meant to ask before, did you see Phoenicolacerta in the ruins/dunes themselves, or in the town? What about the arachnids too?

Not taking anything away form such a great trip - you certainly did well for that time of year - but you couldn't come across any Macrovipera while you were in the east? ;)

Great report, Bobby.
Finding so many salamanders and hohenackeri + getting chased by angry turks: seems like a perfect herping trip!
