Garter snake (50 cm est.) in Bernheim forest, July, 2004.



Box turtle in Bernheim forest, July, 2004.



Couleuvre at Lastours (80-100cm est.), March, 2005. Francois and I identified this as a Coulouvre de Montpellier (monspessulanus).



A hedgehog which passed throuhg our yard one evening in mid-June, 2005. It was not mature yet, perhaps about half an adult size. For perspective, it is shown here as it investigates my shoe!



An as of yet to be identified vulture (current guess is a turkey vulture?), near Dan's dock at lake Cumberland near the end of June, 2005. Photo by Quentin.



Lizard in the rocks near the border with the water (about a 3 feet or 1 meter away from the water line) at Cumerland lake, late June, 2005. Estimated to be 6 inches from nose to tip of tail (18 cm est.). Rather spiny also! As yet to be formally identified, but they were rather common along the shoreline

As yet unidentified snake from our neighbors porch, caught Sepember 28, 2005. Here, Quentin is looking him over in a glass jar before we let him go in some woods nearby.



A closeup of the snake above.



A bat which was resting on the wall of the country house at Poleanas, France, late summer (July-Aug.) 2005.



Recently when taking apart an old wooden shed, we found a treasure trove of newts living with a fire salamander. After taking some photos, we returned them to a spot not far from where we found them. Toulouse area (Oct.) 2008.



As in the last photo, but a closeup of the newt. (Oct.) 2008.



As in the last photo. All together. 7 newts and 1 salamander were found.(Oct.) 2008.



Green lizard in the gorges du Verdon, Provence, France. May, 2014.
