  • Ten minutes documentary about Cyprus Red fox - by George Konstantinou

    The red fox, Vulpes vulpes, is the largest of the true foxes and the most abundant wild member of the Carnivora, being present across the entire Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa, North America and Eurasia. It is listed as least concern by the IUCN.Its range has increased alongside human expansion, having been introduced to Australia, where it is considered harmful to native mammals and bird populations. Due to its presence in Australia, it is included among the list of the "world's 100 worst invasive species". The red fox originated from smaller-sized ancestors from Eurasia during the Middle Villafranchian period, and colonised North America shortly after the Wisconsin glaciation. Among the true foxes, the red fox represents a more progressive form in the directio...

  • Black Tarantula (Chaetopelma olivaceum) spider attack - Cyprus

    There are 2 species of Tarantula on Cyprus Chaetopelma olivaceum and Chaetopelma karlamani. Their burrows have webs around the entrance. They can be aggressive, but only if you are invading its space, and even then it is likely to try and escape - fast - rather than attack (though some of us have had very close encounters gardening without anything other than a big fright for both parties). Its ability to jump might startle you. If it bites you it is not much to worry about, it is only slightly poisonous.

    Finsch's wheatear (Oenanthe finschii) is a wheatear, a small insectivorous passerine that was formerly classed as a member of thethrush family Turdidae, but is now more generally considered to be an Old World flycatcher, Muscicapidae. This 15–16 cm long bird breeds in semi-desert and stony hillsides from Turkey east to Afghanistan and western Pakistan. It is a short-distance migrant, wintering in Egypt and the Greater Middle East. It wanders to Cyprus with some frequency. The nest is built in a rock crevice, and 4-5 eggs is the normal clutch. In summer the male Finsch's wheatear is a white and black bird. The white crown, central back and belly contrast with the black face, throat and wings. The tail and rump are white, with an inverted black T giving a pattern like black-eared wheatear, b...

    Endemic to Cyprus - Family: Gylippidae The Solifugae are an order of animals in the class Arachnida known variously as camel spiders, wind scorpions, sun spiders, or solifuges. The order includes more than 1,000 described species in about 153 genera. Much like a spider, the body of a solifugid has two tagmata: an opisthosoma (abdomen) behind the prosoma (that is, in effect, a combined head and thorax). At the front end, the prosoma bears two chelicerae that, in most species, are conspicuously large. The chelicerae serve as jaws and in many species also are used forstridulation. Unlike scorpions, solifugids do not have a third tagma that forms a "tail". Most species of Solifugae live in dry climates and feed opportunistically on ground-dwelling arthropods and other small animals. The larges...

    Asinus is a subgenus of Equus (single-toed (hooved) grazing animal) that encompasses several subspecies of Equidae commonly known as asses, characterized by long ears, a lean, straight-backed build, lack of a true withers, a coarse mane and tail, and a reputation for considerable toughness and endurance. The common donkey is the best-known domesticated representative of the subgenus, with both domesticated and feral varieties. Among the wild ass species are several never-domesticated species that live in Asia and Africa. The Cyprus donkeys is the donkey breed of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. There are two principal strains: a large dark-coloured type with a pale belly, probably of European origin; and a small grey African type which represents about 20% of the total population, whi...

    Lycosa is a genus of wolf spiders. More than 200 species are found, represented throughout most of the world. Often (incorrectly) called the "true tarantula", Lycosa can be distinguished from common wolf spiders by their relatively large size. This genus includes the European Lycosa tarantula which was once associated with tarantism, a dubious affliction whose symptoms included shaking, cold sweats, and a high fever, asserted to be curable only by the traditional tarantella dance. There is no scientific substantiation of that myth. In fact, the venom of wolf spiders is much less harmful to humans than, e.g., that of the European widow spider of the Theridiidae family.From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The red fox originated from smaller-sized ancestors from Eurasia during the Middle Villafranchian period, and colonised North America shortly after the Wisconsin glaciation. Among the true foxes, the red fox represents a more progressive form in the direction ofcarnivory. Apart from its large size, the red fox is distinguished from other fox species by its ability to adapt quickly to new environments. Despite its name, the species often produces individuals with other colourings, including albinos and melanists. Forty-five subspecies are currently recognised, which are divided into two categories: the large northern foxes, and the small, basal southern foxes of Asia and the Middle East.

They inhabit open habitats, especially steppe and savannah. A few species of shrike are forest dwellers, seldom occurring in open habitats. Some species breed in northern latitudes during the summer, then migrate to warmer climes for the winter. Shrikes are medium-sized birds, up to 50 centimetres (20 in) in length, with grey, brown, or black and white plumage. Their beaks are hooked, like that of a bird of prey, reflecting their predatory nature, and their calls are strident. From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shrike

The tail pattern is similar to the male's. Finsch's wheatear feeds mainly on insects. Its call is a whistled tsit, and the song is a mix of clear notes with whistles and crackling.

The largest species grow to a length of 12–15 cm (5–6 in), including legs. A number of urban legends exaggerate the size and speed of the Solifugae, and their potential danger to humans, which is negligible.From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Members of the family Gylippidae are known from central Asia, the Near East, and southern Africa. The 25 known species are distributed among five genera: Acanthogylippus (1 species), Bdellophaga (1 species), Gylippus (18 species), Lipophaga (3 species), and Trichotoma (3 species).

Distribution: Cyprus (Trodos area, western and southwestern Cyprus in the following locations: Polis Chrysochou, Lemona Village (Paphos area), Akrotiri, Dhekelia and Kato Pyrgos) and also one finding in a park in Nicosia. M. cyprius seems to be quite common in parts of Cyrpus) Also some locations in occupied northern Cyprus. Habitat: Arid/semi-arid habitats with little or no vegetation. Moderate to limited humidity. Don't dig burrows, but use natural space/burrows under stones and other objects. In Northwestern areas it seems that this species might enter gardens and accidently houses. Venom: No medical data available in literature, but probably moderate venomous. Case reports I have gotten for 6-7 patients seems to indicate local effects only, but there is much pain involved in some of the cases.

Some hundreds of Cyprus donkeys live on the Karpass Peninsula northern part of Cyprus. They were abandoned there by Greek Cypriot farmers during the Turkish invasion in 1974. In 2008, a group of Greek and Turkish Cypriots organized to save the animals from extinction after several were found shot to death

Asinus is a subgenus of Equus (single-toed (hooved) grazing animal) that encompasses several subspecies of Equidae commonly known as asses, characterized by long ears, a lean, straight-backed build, lack of a true withers, a coarse mane and tail, and a reputation for considerable toughness and endurance. The common donkey is the best-known domesticated representative of the subgenus, with both domesticated and feral varieties. Among the wild ass species are several never-domesticated species that live in Asia and Africa. The Cyprus donkeys is the donkey breed of the Mediterranean island of Cyprus. There are two principal strains: a large dark-coloured type with a pale belly, probably of European origin; and a small grey African type which represents about 20% of the total population, which in 2002 was estimated at 22002700. Some hundreds of Cyprus donkeys live in a feral state on the Karpass Peninsula in the Turkish-controlled northern part of Cyprus. They were abandoned there by Greek Cypriot farmers during the Turkish invasion in 1974. In 2008, a group of Greek and Turkish Cypriots organized to save the animals from extinction after several were found shot to death. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Την μοναδική και πολύ σημαντική βιοποικιλότητα του Ακάμα θέλησε να αναδείξει και να εξηγήσει ο Πρόεδρος του Συνδέσμου προστασίας φυσικής κληρονομιάς και βιοποικιλότητας της Κύπρου Γιώργος Κωνσταντίνου. Στο πλαίσιο του Περιφερειακού Συνεδρίου «ΕΕ – Κύπρος Αειφόρος Ανάπτυξη – Φυσικοί Πόροι» που έγινε στην Αίθουσα εκδηλώσεων Κοινοτικού Συμβουλίου Κάθικα στις 30 Αυγούστου, 2014 προβλήθηκε μια ταινία για την βιοποικιλότητα της περιοχής του Ακάμας η οποία αναλύει τη σημαντικότητα της υπάρχουσας χλωρίδας και πανίδας, που φιλοξενείται στην περιοχή. Το Συνέδριο άνοιξε με χαιρετισμούς εκ μέρους εκπροσώπων των τριών συνδιοργανωτών - του Γραφείου του Ευρωπαϊκού Κοινοβουλίου στην Κύπρο, του Τμήματος Περιβάλλοντος, του Διαχειριστικού Έργου Ακάμα. Η Αν. Επικεφαλής του Γραφείου του ΕΚ, Αλεξάνδρα Ατταλίδου, υπέδειξε ότι η όποια ανάπτυξη του Ακάμα πρέπει να γίνει βάσει ολοκληρωμένου διαχειριστικού σχεδίου αλλά και να εξυπηρετεί τον στόχο της διατήρησης και ενίσχυσης του περιβάλλοντος της περιοχής. Τον λόγο πήραν επίσης αρκετοί ακαδημαϊκοί και ειδικοί κυβερνητικοί λειτουργοί αναπτύσσοντας τα ιδιαίτερα χαρακτηριστικά του Ακάμα ενώ των τοποθετήσεων ακολούθησε διάλογος με το παρευρισκόμενο κοινό.

Lycosa is a genus of wolf spiders. More than 200 species are found, represented throughout most of the world. Often (incorrectly) called the "true tarantula", Lycosa can be distinguished from common wolf spiders by their relatively large size. This genus includes the European Lycosa tarantula which was once associated with tarantism, a dubious affliction whose symptoms included shaking, cold sweats, and a high fever, asserted to be curable only by the traditional tarantella dance. There is no scientific substantiation of that myth. In fact, the venom of wolf spiders is much less harmful to humans than, e.g., that of the European widow spider of the Theridiidae family.From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
