East of Antalya, Turkey - 3-9 October 2015 - Reptiles and Amphibians

After seeing a friend's herping trip to Antalya region, I was quite excited to see what I could find around the hotel. I managed 6 species of reptile and 2 amphibians with Green Toad in addition to the animals photographed below. Starred Agama were my first agamas and some were really impressive in size and also colour with their bright blue. A personal highlight was of course a Spur-thighed Tortoise which I almost stood on until it started to wander off! Only my second ever wild tortoise.
