Greece is the word

At the moment, Matt, one of my assitants, is on a herping trip in Greece. He’s been having a fantastic time and has come across many of the reptile and amphibian species he had really hoped to see, including  over 20 Ottoman vipers (Montivipera xanthina). In recent days he has been on Lemnos island where he has been observing Eastern spadefoot toads (Pelobates syriacus) at night. These toads use their back feet to dig into the soft substrate where they live. Below is cool video clip of one of the toads Matt filmed digging. For further clips and the latest update don’t forget to check out our ‘LIVE‘ section at the top of this page and for more info on Matt’s amazing trip, please check out his blog: http://mwilsonherps.wordpress.com/
