    A big Easter-fire in the village of Scala Kallonis. The people didn't mind that the sparks
    burned little holes in the canopies of the terraces.

    In 'flight the Eastern spadefoot becomes a completely different animal. Note it's well-streamlined shape and the strechable skin at the base of the hind legs.

    Two adult Ottoman vipers found close to each other dead on the road very near to
    Molivos. The right one is decapitated. Probably a deliberate action by a local farmer.

    This very specimen is the first live Cat Snake ever recorded from Lesbos. It's a night dweller, looking for gecko's.

    The sand boa showing its secret burrying tool: the shovel-tipped nose. It can be drilled down into the sand by strong muscles in the solid neck and body.
