    The adder habitat on the top of Vitosha mountain at 1900 meter above sea level. Finding
    adders depends very much on the weather conditions. You need a little bit of sun, certainly
    not too much. A sunny pause in between showers is excellent.

    The open fields just outside Sofia provided a rich habitat for sand lizard (Lacerta agilis chersonensis), smooth snake (Coronella austriaca) and grass snake (Natrix natrix).
