Welcome to the European Field Herping Community (EFHC), here is the foundation of what we hope will grow to be a large photo & field report sharing area for European herpers, amateur or pros...
This site will not give out specific locations for any species, common or rare. This site will not show or deal with any herps albeit of European origin from a captive environment.
We need you ! If you have found this site, then you are interested in reptiles and amphibians, if you perform field trips or regularly go out and photograph the herps you see then we want you to submit photos and reports from your findings. Please note we are having a mammoth task trying to give you a better site, but work is finally underway and it's slowly improving. Gone are those ads, and loading times should have improved (Updated: 1/9/12). Stay tuned.

Macroprotodon cucullatus 'found' in Ibiza
by Matt Wilson on 1/2/2010 at 17h15
This is the first time I have heard of Macroprotodon cucullatus reported from Ibiza, which along with Formentera is famous for having no snakes. I wonder if this is a recent arrival from Majorca or Minorca, or has simply been overlooked.
The photo on this blog clearly shows a young Algerian false smooth snake like those from elsewhere in the Balearics. The find was on a beach in May 2007.
Has anyone every heard of this snake in Ibiza before?
