Mammal watching stopover in Austria

  1. Mattia from Italy 1 year ago

    Just to point out that European Souslik is NOT the only one ground squirrel in Europe. In Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and a place in Poland lives even the Spotted (or Speckled) Souslik Spermophilus suslicus. The outskirts of Odessa are a good place for them.

    Even the Alpine Marmot is a ground squirrel. All three species are endemic of Europe.

      Thanks very much for your reply, Mattia!
      You are of course right. When I wrote “Europe”, I had EU in mind and I meant “ground squirrel” in the narrower sense. But I wasn’t aware that Spermophilus suslicus occurs in Poland. Do you know where in Poland?

    Thanks, Ralf, very readable. I am looking forward to my next trip to Austria so that I can try some of these sites.
