The tale of Zante’s animals.
My favourite part of all trips are the animals. I have to touch them, feed or at least take a photo.
On Zakynthos, most animals are nothing surprising. Goats, horses, and so on.
However, there were some I’ve seen for the first time in my life.
Caretta-caretta sea turtle. Amazing. Huge. Majestic. And in danger of extinction. It was an honour to see one. If you want to read more about the protection programme go to: http://www.nmp-zak.org/index.php?l=EN&t=content&pn=home&r=home_menu
Sea urchin. No close contact with this one. God forbid! I saw hundreds of them whilst snorkeling. Next year I need to buy an underwater housing for my camera, so I can take photos of all the living creatures 😀
Last, but not least – cicada. Oh, how irritating cicadas were at the beginning! Couldn’t get used to them. Can you find the cicada in the picture? 😉
