Reptiles are cold-blooded vertebrates. They rely more on environmental
conditions and less on food to regulate their body temperature than
warm-blooded birds and mammals. There are not many reptiles in Europe,
compared to the number and variety found in warmer climates. The species
which live in Slovenia have adapted to the winter to enable them to
survive the cold season. Eleven species of snake live here, of which
only three are venomous: the Adder, the Nose-horned Viper and the Asp
Viper. These poisonous snakes have heart-shaped heads, stocky bodies
with short tails, which are visibly different from the main body, and
their eyes have narrow pupils. Non-poisonous snakes have small heads,
passing seamlessly into slender bodies, in turn passing into the tail.
Ivan Esenko presents the world of nature and invites the reader to learn more about the world that we are part of. His camera is his most faithful companion and its lens particularly likes to ‘capture’ those animals that live in close quarters to man. We take them so much for granted that we no longer seem to care for them. Ivan is their voice, he has become their ‘personal’ photographer.
