The Javelin Sand boa is the rarest snake species in Europe and the only boa species from the Old Continent. The last live specimen was seen / collected in 1937 near Cochirleni. In September 2014, a team consisting of Vlad Cioflec herpetologists, Tibor Sos, with nature photographer and some enthusiastic naturalists managed to find a stable population in southern Romania, near the Danube. This really stunning discovery shows that sometimes what is lost suddenly reappears.
