Humid and wet


Karpathos Salamanders Lyciasalamandra helverseni live on their dry and windy islands for millenia. But they avoid wandering around when a dry wind is blowing or in summer when the temperatures are high. They like moving in winter (which is very mild in south Aegean) and on nights with moist winds and rain. They are amphibians after all.
