Habitat and Ecology
The species is associated with streams, cisterns and pools of either fresh or saline water. It breeds in such wetland habitats; females lay a maximum of 1000 eggs at one time. Terrestrial habitats of the species include oak forests, Nerium oleander scrub and archaeological ruins (Salvador et al. 2009). D. scovazzi is chiefly found in Mediterranean woodlands and forests (World Wildlife Fund & Hogan, 2007). Individuals can often be discovered hiding under rocks, in crevices and even under the bark of cork oaks (Quercus suber). It is thought that the species can endure some relatively minor habitat modification.
