Lake Petelinje

Lake Petelinje is the second largest River Pivka lake after Lake Palčje, and is the most long-lasting one, since it is filled up to half a year annually – it fills in spring, starting April, and does not drain until the beginning of the dry period, sometimes not until autumn. When the waters are at their highest, the lake has a maximum depth of 5–7m and a surface area of 55ha. Due to annual draining and lack of connection to other waters, no fish inhabit the lake. Special attention should be given to a 5mm crab, as today, it can only be found living in Lake Petelinje.
