Wild animals

Sometimes we go out in the wild to find reptiles and insects. It can be difficult to spot them, but now and then we get lucky. Here´s some of our findings. Mostly from Sweden, but we try to spot animals wherever we are.

Place: Ransberg, Tibro, Sweden, may 2018

As we were out in a gravel pit, we found this little grass snake, in Latin Natrix natrix, lying in the ground sun basking. We studied him for a while, took a photo and then left him to enjoy the afternoon.

Place: Grötvik, Halmstad, Sweden, may 2018

Back att this good place for finding Swedens only poisonous snake, the European adder, in Latin Vipera berus. We went there a sunny day and yes we saw snakes! A lot of them. Situated just at the coast this place is fantastic for snakes. Many low bushes, and warm stones bask on. We saw a total of three snakes under one hour. Two of them climbed up in a bush and tried to hide, but we spotted them through the branches. All in all a fantastic day for snakespotting.

Grötvik, Halmstad, Sweden, may 2018

We had heard that this place was good for finding Swedens only poisonous snake, the European adder, in Latin Vipera berus. So we went there, unfortunately at a cloudy day and we had to struggle to find anything. But, suddenly, the snake just laid there before our feet. So beautiful and a little bit slow because of the cold weather. Our fist wild European adder. This place is fantastic for snakes. Many low bushes, and warm stones bask on.

Sometimes you find animals where you don´t expect it. This time was like that. At the beach promenade in Alemunecar in Spain, this little creature whit friends suddenly crossed our walk.Why they walked like this in a row we don’t know, but it looked peculiar and we liked it. Photo, Instagram and moving forward!

Scorpion

Just beside a small stone this little scorpion looked at us when we passed on the beautiful walking tracks of Cinque Terre. Here there are both animals and sightings to see. We saw numerous lizards and one snake. The snake was unfortunately too quick for us and we didn´t get the chance to take a picture.
