Buzz after new discovery at Tomb of the Kings

March 28th, 2017|Latest News|Comments Off on Buzz after new discovery at Tomb of the Kings

ARCHAEOLOGISTS are excited about a brand new discovery  at the Tomb of the Kings in Paphos.

According to the Cyprus Weekly, local experts claim they may have stumbled on a mausoleum created for Ptolemy Eupator, an ancient king of Cyprus.

The paper reports the mausoleum dates back to 166-152 BC.

“This is a unique grave memorial that I have not encountered anywhere else,” said expert Michalis Lefatzis.

The Tombs of Kings, many of which date back to the 4th century BC, are carved out of solid rock, and are thought to have been the burial sites of Paphitic aristocrats and high officials up to the third century AD.

It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With the Spring comes the snakes…

March 22nd, 2017|Latest News|Comments Off on With the Spring comes the snakes…

Spring is here and that means the snakes are waking up! With the heat rising and agricultural land being developed, snakes are becoming a more common sight in our gardens and in urban areas of Cyprus.

The snakes seek food, water and shelter from the burning sun anywhere they can find it, and that could even be behind your plant pot.

Snakes, most of which are harmless to humans, favour houses with green lawns and swimming pools.

They spend much of their time hunting for lizards and rodents.

In Cyprus there are eight species, with only one breed being considered really dangerous. Here is your guide to the snakes in our neighbourhood.

CAT SNAKE

A slender-necked and broad-headed snake with a total length up to 70-80cm.

It prefers stony areas, sunny rocky slopes, sandy places with bushy plant cover adjacent to roads and ruins and feeds on lizards and small mammals. You can often see it foraging at dawn and dusk, killing its prey with venom, then swallowing.
It has fangs at back of upper jaw and is not dangerous to man.

THE MONTPELLIER SNAKE

One of the largest and probably the commonest snake in the Mediterranean region. It is seen as a threat to small game species and farm birds because of it size.

THE CYPRUS WHIP SNAKE

The Whip Snake’s natural habitats are temperate forests, temperate shrubland, Mediterranean-type shrubby vegetation, arable land, pastureland, plantations, rural gardens, and urban areas. Not dangerous to humans.

THE GRASS SNAKE

Typically dark green or brown in colour with a characteristic yellow collar behind the head, which explains the alternative name ringed snake. The colour may also range from grey to black. The underside is lighter in colour and it is harmless to humans.

LARGE WHIP SNAKE

Not dangerous to humans and will eat a diet made up of rats, mice, birds and lizards. A large Whip Snake measuring three metres was spotted in Paphos several years ago.

THE COIN SNAKE

A harmless pale brown snake with dark brown diamond-shaped markings along its back.

TYPHLOS VERMICLARIS

Also known as the “pink worm snake”, is harmless and not so common.

THE BLUNT NOSED VIPER!

The “Vipera Lebetina” is a dangerous highly poisonous viper. It is a fat snake, varying in colour with a yellow and horn-like tail-end.

It inhabits terrain with boulders and bushes and hillsides beside streams. It attacks only in defence. If it is disturbed, it hisses loudly and may attack very rapidly.

It is particularly dangerous because when it bites, its teeth remain embedded in the tissue and the movements of the jaw pump large amounts of poison into the wound.

Possibility of Paphos – Egypt cruise liner link

March 22nd, 2017|Latest News|Comments Off on Possibility of Paphos – Egypt cruise liner link

The President of the Paphos Chamber of Commerce Andreas Demetriades has said discussions are underway to establish air and sea links with Egypt.

He said that recent discussions with Egyptian officials touched on the possibility of opening direct flights between Paphos and Egypt this year and even a cruise-liner connection.

“But what is a very positive development and perhaps less expected than was the air connection is the issue of a sea link,” said Demetriades. “I raised the question of cruise liners from Egypt to Cyprus, for which Egyptian state officials appeared very positive,” he said.
