In zoological circles, Iran is known for its biodiversity and robust ecosystem, which differs from the wildlife found in Africa and other neighboring regions. In the west of Iran lies the Alamto desert, where the land has been formed by the Zagros ‘fold-and-thrust’ belt. The desert offers an ideal combination of natural conditions that allow it to host a variety of rare reptiles, including one of the most mysterious creatures in the animal kingdom: the spider-tailed horned viper. Alamto: A Reptile Wonderland focuses on several such rare species and showcases their mating rituals, hunting practices, and more.
