Visit The Duck Pond on Kos Island

I have created a web page about The Duck Pond on Kos Island, greece at:-http://www.sunsethotelkos.com/duckpond.html

The Duck pond is located on the Main Road (to Airport) between Tingaki and Pyli
The Pond is at a turn off to Pyli, near some restaurants.You may be able to feed the ducks and possibly the terrapins or eels if they haven't eaten too much already.

Pictured is the Balkan Terrapin, a species native to Kos Island and an American Red Eared Slider which is not native to Greece. The locals have told me that the Lake is bottomless and connects to the sea, and that a car that ran into the lake vanished below the silt and was never found!

If you find any errors on this page please contact me at rajohn1@adam.com.au
