Invasion (2020)


SKU: invasion-2020 Category:

Under the quarantine due to the pandemic of COVID19 with the ban measures in place and making traveling looks like a dream, I decided to take advantage of the informations I had and photograph the frogs that live in a nearby pond. The photo shoot took a completely different turn when I noticed that a common watersnake (Nerodia sipedon) had something in its mouth that did not look like a frog… with a closer look I discovered that it was an Crested newt (Triturus macedonicus). Τhis unexpected event triggered a series of dives that led to the discovery of a small colony. This species is found in Western Macedonia, Thessaly, Epirus, western Central Greece, Corfu. It was recently reduced to a species since until recently it was classified as a subspecies of the species Triturus carnifex. The final size of females reaches 18cm and males 15cm. It is mainly a nocturnal species and remains in the water about 1/3 of the time during the spring period, where it reproduces. By the end of the breeding season, females lay up to 250 eggs.
