Found this and a smaller one trapped in a hole in the ground
some larvae on my favourite Salamandra stop in a stream in the woods
The poor thing was laying eggs (but they were stuck somehow), no male around, in a very small basin, initially used for trouts. Water gauge was only about 15cm and exposed to the sun all day. She was bloated and couldn't move much. Anyone knows what kind of illness this is? I saw it in captive frogs (illness: Hydrops) when they had a lack of vitamins. I am worried about the population since there are many ponds around...hope someone can help!
Saved them from a dry swimming pool...these lucky newts were hiding under a stone.
Not the fox, but its den, I was looking for the young foxes, because I found their mother dead next to the road...I couldn't find them, but I saw 4-5 dens...If anyone knows what I can do now, just tell me :)
Sorry for the bad quality
Sorry, I couldn't get a better pic :)
Found some (along with other species) while doing the spring-cleaning of a pond.
Found some (along with other species) while doing the spring-cleaning of a pond. Obviously a female but I'm not sure about the species...
Found 7 males (along with some other species) while doing the spring-cleaning of a pond.
We found 7 females (along with some other species) while doing the spring-cleaning of a pond.
On the second picture you can see them all (of course we didn't leave them in the pot for long!).
Maybe someone can help me identify, I think it is not that hard, because we do not have many couloured beetles here...
Maybe someone can still identify this poor little fellow...
