Default Easter trip to Croatia (Krk)

So we decided to take an occasion to visit this place until it`s overcrowded with tourists. We`ve got quite nice list of finds although we had no luck to find top species.
The wheather was very pleasant, sunny with day temps about 20C.

Some more photos. I met nose horned for first time and I was surprised how fast and agile it is in comparison with common European viper.

Awesome photos! Thank you for sharing. The lizards are just beautiful!
What kind of newt was that?

Amazing landscape!!! Would never have guess it was Croatia. What are those concrete ponds built for? Drinking water for goats?

Regards Neil

Hi,
I guess it was southern smooth newt. I would never have expected any surface water either amphibians on dry karstic plateau. There are several of these artificial lakes primarily built for sheep watering . Each one was nicely populated with newts and large amounts of toad tadpoles, probably green toad.
