twitching

The urge among bird watchers to "twitch" or "tick" as many species as possible is well known and widely spread. We feel the same about herptiles. Birds move around quite a lot and with more than 400 possible twitches, twitching in Sweden only makes a lot of sense. With 19 herptile species available and no Siberian species blown of route we have to do the travelling ourselves.

Here are our rules:

  • species within the species list must be seen or heard within the area covered by Arnold (basically Europe)
  • specimens must be alive
  • specimens must be observed in the wild

and of course:

  • never hurt an animal
  • respect restrictions to handle special species in some countries
  • respect private land
  • contribute to the conservation of herpetofauna in Europe
