fantastic story and great pictures!
I like you to show biodiversity (mammals, birds, scorpions, etc.)
I love in situ photos of lizards!, the european roller photo with prey in its beak, Euchaster pairing, etc. are very interesting.
I think that the lizard in the photo called «golden lizard fingers strip (Acanthodactylus aureus) Photo:. © Jesse Erens» is a Messalina guttulata (http://www.moroccoherps.com/ficha/Mesalina_guttulata/) and the scorpion is probably Hottentota genre.
thank you for your wonderful words. I had fun seeing it and writing about it.
I think you are absolutely right on the identification of that Mesalina. Maybe Gabri can change it?
I am interested to know more about the Moroccan scorpions. Is there some resource I can use to find out more?
I’m the one who can change it. I agree it’s a Messalina species, but are you all sure it’s Messalina guttulata?
The general area has two other species: M. pasteuri and M. olivieri. but both species are striped, this specimen is not. That would do it for me.
Hi Maykel! 🙂
For more information about Moroccan scorpions
New trip report:
good report!! A lot of animals 😉
The euchaster sp. Is wrong, is Eugaster sp.
Thanks for the kind words. And a typo I guess. Good to point it out, as you are absolutely right 🙂
Fixed! I’ve changed Euchaster to Eugaster
Fantastic trip! Interesting landscapes and species. The last brosseti is very nice!! Cheers
A great trip report and a fun read. Can see that you have enjoyed the trip. Congratulations!
Really nice trip report. Thanks for not focusing just in herps but in a wider set of animals. Snakes are always the most difficult guys to find in Morocco but, don’t panic, it’s a matter of visiting it again and again. Best!
Realy Nice report and sightings!
But you’re sigthing of the Golden Fringe-fingered Lizard (Acanthodactylus aureus) looks more like a Small-spotted Lizard (Mesalina guttulata) “ to me. http://www.moroccoherps.com/ficha/mesalina_guttulata/ “
Keep up the good work and thanks!

Yes Sjoerd. That a Mesalina without doubts. I am talking with the admin to change that. Thanks 🙂
Author here, Philippe Geniez and Jacques Franchimont confirmed to me that what we called an Acanthodactylus erythrurus, is actually Acanthodactylus busacki, based on the latest distribution maps and a bad picture.
And thanks for changing the A.aureus to M. guttulata. We have become a bit wiser in the intervening years 🙂
You are welcome
