20110506_Turkey_114015_CR.jpg - Whereas the surrounding land of Harran is covered with large cornfields, the area around the ruins is not used for agriculture (only extensive grazing). So the original nature of this landscape was preserved, showing how this desert steppe might have looked like in the past. It is habitat for the Harran Fringe-fingered Lizard ( Acanthodactylus harranensis ), Schneider's Skink ( Eumeces schneideri ) and the Snake-eyed Lizard ( Ophisops elegans ).
