This guy was 2.5 cm in length.
I believe this is an Asian racer observed in my yard. Actually they were two of them but had not chance to shot them in pair. The next one was about the same size but with more contrasting colours (almost black and white).
Then a week after found a skin there, with total length 132cm and the tail 32cm. A head of skin is attached here. Also I have counted ventrals ~182.
About 6-7 are observed near the pond and swimming in it.
Assuming they are two males, as they were fighting.
I am adding some pictures where they all have very different colouration, but still I think all are Marsh Frogs. Please correct me if they are not.
4-6 observed on rocky slopes down to river Kasakh and along it's bank. They seem very abundant in this gorge.
4 seen in private half build territory full of rocks and human refuses.
My friend alerted about this gecko
weight- 30 g
in hiding place
On the surface in the dusk.
Had necrotic toes.
At first glans this was a road kill but there was a wire tight around neck.
It was an old kill and very hard to say about taxon. Inclined to belive it was Macrovipera lebetina.
though this is more brown i'm inclined to think that this has the same taxon as the green one from mi previous observation nearby.

This Atlas is created to represent divetsity and distribution of amphibians and reptiles as a part of Armenian ecosystems, as well as to support interest of both professional and amateur naturalists studying herps of Armenia and surrounding countries. Studying herps is an interesting hobby for many people and a profession to others. It includes adventurous field trips, observations of unique and unforgetable ancient looking animals and their behaviors, recognizing species, as well as photographing, video or audio-taping animals and their sounds and sharing their knowledge by writing and publishing gathered materials. Very important thing to always remember is that collecting wild animals and taking them away from their natural environment, as well as destroying their natural habitat, threatens further survival of wild populations a heritage of the life on the Earth. Therefore responsible herper has to make sure his/her activities do not harm individual animals nor their habitats. The law about Animal World of Armenia, prohibits unsanctioned collection of Amphibians and Reptiles, and assumes certain fines which vary depending on the species. Therefore, again, please be responsible herper, enjoy what you do, and let others to ejoy as well.
