Abstract: The Middle Pleistocene fissure-filling deposits of Emirkaya-2 in central Turkey yielded numerous bones of amphibians and reptiles, belonging to at least 11 taxa: Bufo viridis, Laceria sp., Pseudopus cf. P. apodus, Scolecophidia indet., Coluber caspius, Coluber sp., Elaphe cf. E. quatuorlineata; cf. Telescopus sp., Colubridae indet., Natrix cf. N. natrix and Vipera sp. from the "Oriental vipers" group. The assemblage probably comprised only living forms occurring in the area today. The faunal composition of this locality indicate warm climate and at least a partly forested environment.
