Morocco, year 2016

mar16atheris-025By the end of 2016, we decided to take a week for a new trip session in southwestern Morocco. The goal was, accompanied by our friend Abdou, to prospect hardly and maximize the chances of encountering species. Despite the advanced season and the short time available, we were able to observe some thirty species in total, including some rare or difficult to encounter species, such as Myriopholis algeriensis and above all two Egyptian Cobras Naja haje !
