Herping in Sweden can be kind of a challenge, since we have so few species of herps...

I toke this photos on my last trip to "Skurugata", a beautiful area in the highlands of south Sweden. Didn't find any herps, so i guess its a bit of topic :evil:, but i thought I'd share them anyway... My dog and girlfriend got to pose in some of the photos.

Snakes

Natrix natrix

Lizards
Lacerta vivipara
Anguis fragilis

Hi Rotto!

Love the pics...
I spent a lot of my time growing up with my grandmother in Eksjö...
And I have climbed up to Skuruhatt a couple of times when I was a child!

Thank you so much for bringing memorys back :D

That's beautiful country, the scenery would make up for the disappointment of not finding any herps. Why did that first picture give me the urge to go mushroom picking? :)

Certainly dont feel bad about not having any herp pics. I often enjoy looking at scenery and habitat pics more than herp pics anyways. It looks like those hill sides should just be crawling with herps.
