This year the house is full of yellow black striped spiders and although the water snakes in Bulgaria have proven difficult to photo, there are other snake photos now on. I have found many insects that attach themself to dogs, but even the largest of spiders here is not really poisonous spiders in Bulgaria they can however give a nasty bite! The really crazy preying mantis pictures show close ups of the mad teeth of this superb creature! There are rather huge snails in Bulgaria some quite small striped spiders and some of the ticks we have removed from our mutts have proven to move around as if wild ticks not like the larger ticks which move slowly, these ticks are really fast! One Bulgarian guy watches as my numerous cats play the mouse hunter game throwing their catch up into the air.

But how do my dogs get ticks in the first place? What do the Bulgarian people think about where ticks come from? We have pictures of black spiders with yellow on its back and tell you if a praying mantis bites with a yellow back spider flipping mad at the camera! You may ask how remove huge ticks from dog but if the tick is that huge already, its been on your dog for quite some time damaging the animal as happened with my huge sheep dog, a Kangal originating from Turkey! I have tried numerous insect repellent for dogs but find Frontline still the strongest insect repellent.

I bring you pictures of Bulgarian people photos of what happens if a tick gets under my dog’s skin, photos of spider black and yellow golden egg on back should we kill wasp spiders, no we shouldnt kill any spiders they are your best house mate. I have two ginger siamese cats, well they arn’t really siamese cats, but their mother looked siamese!

You can see some wild red mushrooms and giant mushrooms, my siamese cross sphinx cats, some rather fluffy little puppies, a few Bulgaria horses, lots of photos of snakes in Bulgaria. These Bulgaria snakes are stoned to death or end up as road kill! Lots of lovely coloured lizards, bugs with wings, some green spotted frogs dangerous to dogs and cats as they emit their red warts at the oncoming animals as their defense mechanism.

So far, I have captured photos of grasshoppers frogs n toads dragonflys n otters woodpeckers n birds bugs beetles n creepy crawlies cats butterflies n flies entire army’s of ants n horses with their foals I have not managed to capture pictures of the Bulgarian Snakes before it shedded its skin! grass snakes or water snakes. By the edge of one of the many running rivers of Bulgaria, we saw a water snake rush away from us and the loony dog jumping in the river, alas I was not fast enough! One day I will capture the photo of at least one snake! Our friends saw a Bulgarian Otter on the day we took the photo of the otter set in stone.
There are no lions in Bulgaria, but high up in the wooded forests, there are warnings ‘beware of the bear’, I dont think I will be quite so quick in capturing a photo of a bear! But then again, you never know! Watch this space!
We are going hunting this winter! Watch this space for photos from the Bulgarian Hunt for these critters!

Even with Frontline insect repellent, the ticks still attaches to the dogs! Although with insect repellent the tick removed from this lucky mutt hadn’t yet engorged itself on the dogs blood! Fleas are of course in large numbers in Bulgaria so a good insect repellent is imperative! Keep those crawling insects fleas and ticks at bay they are rather nasty creatures.

Snakes a shedded snake skin, dog ticks plus ticks on dogs pictures ticks from sheep ticks on dogs and cats, a funnel web spider, ticks on dogs fur, the wild numerous snakes in Bulgaria. How to remove ticks safely from dogs. The Bulgarian wildlife with black bugs huge black bees with blue wings in photos of the animals in Bulgaria. New photos of the huge black bug. Bulgarian snakes are usually harmless, however keep the grass short around your home or these large snakes will be close by.
Bulgarian spiders come in many varieties, some spiders hang upside down, but there are spiders in Bulgaria that can, and do, bite you!
Some very large close up photos of ticks and ticks in the dogs fur. These ticks are usually left after the sheep have walked throo the land. The pictures of ticks that have been removed from the dog plus in the dogs fur too.
Beasts of the Balkans also has photos of the Bulgarian people of southern Bulgaria. These Bulgarian people treat the animals with great respect. The women usually keep chickens, cows, sheep and goats and the women milk the cows each day.
The Bulgarian women are especially frightened of snakes and usually kill them before the snake has the opportunity to bike one of their children.
There is a spider with a yellow stripe on its back and many large and small spiders. Removing the spiders from your home is not a good idea, these spiders catch the numerous flies and other bugs!
The sheep are not put throo sheep dips, so if they are close, your cat or dog will have many ticks in their fur and it is best to use a good tick repellent. The ticks usually fall off the birds flying overhead too.

Is there any wildlife native only to Bulgaria, there are some giant creatures here, giant ants, giant black bees, giant snails and frogs in Bulgaria
Bulgaria also has many wild horses. These horses are free to roam around wherever the grass is greener. The horses of Bulgaria are adored in the UK. Bulgarian horses have a very calm temperament and the horses are not afraid of strangers.
I have a Kangal shepherd dog. The Kangal originates in Turkey and it is illegal to take the Kangal across the border from Turkey into Bulgaria. However, the Kangal I have was a third generation puppy, born in Bulgaria. The Kangal is a huge dog, my female Kangal has been neutered and the female Kangal breed is much smaller than the huge Kangal male.
The sheep grazing on your land can help keep the grass down, hence deterring the snakes, however they do leave ticks each visit for your cats and dogs!
