If anybody will return to Krk, I would please him/her to control the (possible?) presence of an herpetological species which should not live in Krk: Chalcides chalcides.
But this spring, when I was walking among tall grass in the pine wood (artificial wood, I suppose) almost on the top of Mount Obzova, I noticed a movement that, for me, was 100% typical for this species: small, fast and "swimming" movement of a reptile, which I supposed without doubts to be a Chalcides chalcides.
Only later, at home, I read that this species is absent on this island.

Ok: it could be a young gemonensis... :oops:... But that movement (and the grass habitat!) seemed to me so Chalcides-like, that I even looked for a few minutes for the presence of "other" specimens of these reptiles among dry grass.

:P :?:

Excuse me, is a first observation relates to: E. quatorlineata strange that a female is not pregnant at the time!

Your last statement is actually false! ;)
You should have written: "Strange that that female had no palpable eggs"

I think it can happen. I mean: if females are muscular and well fed, it's sometimes very difficult or even impossible to locate eggs by palpation... :P

In one thing you are right, ALL pine forests on Krk were artificially planted, there are no indigenous
pines on the island.
But there is no pine forest anywhere near Mt. Obzovo (569 m a.s.l.), let alone almost on the top of it.
So where were you actually?

See the map... :D

Implanted pine wood where I saw a "Chalcides-like" movement


P.S. "Almost on the top" was incorrect, I admit (it's "in the direction of" Mount Obzova): but I walk always sooo fast... :oops:

As for Chalcides chalcides, may I say that even the great master Silvio Bruno himself
did not find it on Krk, so, well, ... sapienti sat.

Maybe he found it ( :oops: ), but he thought nobody would believe in this finding... :P :shock:
