So many beautiful animals to be seen & so few pictures to show you comparatively. Of the ones missing are all the different birds (including other birds of prey) and hedgehogs. Foxes & wild boars are more often seen at night so keep your eyes open on those drives back to the villa !
The biggest tortoise ever seen around here ! This one is a “testudo marginata”
1 of 3 different types found on this island.
1 of the many lizzards about.
A gheko, keen insect eater
