Balcanica.info - Amphibians and Reptiles of the Balkans

Balcanica was established in 2006 in order to map the variability and distribution of Amphibians and Reptiles of the Balkans. Local herpetofauna, showing the highest species diversity and endemism, is still far from being completely explored.

Always is something to explore and wonder at the fact, what surprises bring us forgotten mountain valleys, or overcrowded tourist resorts. Maybe the lizard, you have just occasionally photographed on holiday, will be a key piece in the mosaic of distribution! So if you take interest in mapping of Balkan herpetofauna, you can. You just have to registrate and add on-line your locality records and photos in our content management system. It's not problem, that you are not an expert and you do not know to determinate species, we will identify it for you.
