Abstract. Observations of reptiles out of their active periods in the field are very surprising for the researchers. The current short note presents data on the exceptional activity of Darevskia derjugini for the first time in Turkey. Changing climates and global warming may affect the hibernation period of most lizards in the northern hemisphere.
 
Key words: Hibernation, Darevskia derjugini, lizard, Northern Hemisphere.
