We're a couple of Swedes with a strong interest in European Field Herpetology, i.e. we like to travel all across Europe to study frogs, lizards, newts, salamanders, turtles, tortoises, snakes, geckos and chameleons in their natural habitats.
We take a lot of photographs, record sounds and gather knowledge on where and how to find the different species. There are roughly 200 different species to be found in Europe and we're now roughly half way (hence the name of the site) to having seen them all :-) Over the years the twitching (when you observe a species that you have not previously seen) of species have kind of grown on us and we now plan our holidays to parts of Europe where we are likely to find the most new species...
To us the beauty of these animals lies in observing them in the wild and that's why the conservation and restoration of natural habitats is an important issue to us.
The purpose of this site is to provide a meeting place for European field herpetology enthusiasts. We also want to share our photos, sounds and stories and hope that You want to do the same.
