Amphibians and Reptiles

Coastal Woods

The Agile Frog is common, while among the rarest frogs the most specialized one is the Lataste’s Frog. Recently, the Bullfrog has also appeared, a big species of American origins.
In the Botanic Gardens of Caleri you can see the tortoises.
The Asp Viper survives in the last stretches of coastal forests and pinewoods.

Areas Adjacent to the River

The Crested Newt and the Smooth Newt are common.
Among the reptiles, the European Pond Turtle is without a doubt the most typical in the Park.
There are many water snakes: the Grass Snake, also 150 cm long, and the Dice Snake, which is smaller. This snake is not poisonous, but if you pick it up, it may, as a defense, hiss and empty its cloacal contents and spread an unpleasant smell.

Wetlands

They house the Edible Frog, the Common Toad, and the small Green Toad, able to reproduce also in brackish waters.
The European Tree Frog is very widespread.

Experiencing the Delta

Vivere il DeltaThe Po Delta is a wonderful land, most of which is still unknown. It should be experienced by walking slowly across it, discovering the gentleness of its landscape, the warm and rough welcome of the fishing lodges, the emotion of the boat bridges, the mystery of the thick canebrakes, the wide horizons, the activity in the fishing lagoons and in the vegetable gardens, the charm of the mouth and of the sandbars, strips of very thin sand following the seashore.
