Vipera ursinii graeca
A tiny and very fast meadow viper, spotted somewhere in the area. The species is considered "Vulnerable", and the Greek supspecies is pretty rare and strictly protected. It's slightly poisonous, but medical treatment is recommended in any case. http://www.herpetofauna.gr/index.php?mod...
