Şanlıurfa İlinin Yılanları

Fatma ÜÇEŞ [1] , Mehmet Zülfü YILDIZ [2]


In this study, a total of 170 specimens belonging to 21 snake species that have been collected from Şanlıurfa province between 2016 and 2017 as well as during the previous years (2004-2015) and preserved in ZMADYU (Zoology Museum of Adıyaman University) were examined. Nine of the specimens examined were belong to Typhlopidae, 17 to Leptotyphlopidae, 9 to Boidae, 112 to Colubridae, 14 Natricidae, 4 Psammophiidae, 1 to Elapidae, and 5 to Viperidae families. As a result of the field studies, Satunin's Black-Headed Dwarf Snake, Rhynchocalamus satunini (Nikolsky, 1899) was reported for the first time from Şanlıurfa province. The specimen belonging to Zamenis hohenackeri (Strauch, 1873) given in the literature could not be observed during this study. The color-pattern and some metric and meristic measurements of the specimens were taken. In addition, ecological and biological information has been given on the species observed.

Bu çalışmada, 2016 ve 2017 yıllarında, Şanlıurfa ilinde yapılan arazi çalışmaları sonucunda toplanan ve daha önceki yıllarda (2004-2015) ZMADYU (Zoology Museum of Adıyaman University) müzesinde kayıtlı bulunan 21 yılan türüne ait toplam 170 örnek incelenmiştir. İncelenen örneklerden 9’u Typhlopidae, 17’si Leptotyphlopidae, 9’u Boidae, 112’si Colubridae, 14’ü Natricidae, 4’ü Psammophiidae, 1’i Elapidae ve 5’i Viperidae familyasına aittir. Yapılan arazi çalışmaları sonucunda, Rhynchocalamus satunini (Atkılı Toprak Yılan) Şanlıurfa ilinden bu çalışma ile ilk kez tespit edilmiştir. Literatürde verilen Zamenis hohenackeri (Strauch, 1873) türüne ait herhangi bir örnek bu çalışmada gözlenememiştir. Örneklerin renk-desen özellikleri belirlenmiş, bazı metrik ve meristik karakterleri ölçülmüştür. Ayrıca gözlenen türlerle ilgili bazı ekolojik ve biyolojik bilgilere de yer verilmiştir.
