Geographically, Israel is located at the meeting point of three continents- Asia, Europe and Africa. As a result, it serves as a home to many species we don’t know about, some of which only pass during the transitional seasons.

Israel’s Online 2 News, the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel and Professor Shai Meiri of the Department of Zoology at the Tel Aviv University have compiled a list of ten animals that can be found around the country and that many people don’t know about.
