[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Acomys nesiotes (TUR: Kıbrıs dikenlifaresi, ENG: Cyprus spiny mouse):

The Cyprus Spiny Mouse is endemic to Cyprus. It lives in rocky areas. We captured 4 individual on 22.10.2007 around Lefkoşa (Nicosia) area at an altitude of about 600 meters asl in Turkish Republic of Northern Cypruc. No considerable effort has been made since the 1980s to verify its presence and it may persist in small numbers. For this reason, the IUCN considers it data deficient. Our small trip indicated that this species still exist in Cyprus and this may the second photo of this very rare rodent species. I uploaded one another photo of this species earlier.

eline sağlık Dr,
çalışmalarımızın güzel türlerinden biri. belki de ilk resimleri webde. güzel bir aksiyon sahnesi Kıbrıs dikenlifaresi için.
selamlar.

bu kadar özenli çalışmanızın sonunun böyle güzelliklerle bitmesi şaşırtmıyor...
hedefim zor olsa da sizn gibi olmak fareler için olmaz belki ama başarı her yerde...
ellerinize sağlık
saygılarımla
