About this book

Language: German

Nocturnal animals are mysterious and even a little scary – sometimes heard but almost never seen. In close proximity, we can hear grasshoppers chirping, the eerie calls of owls and screech owls, foxes going on the hunt and dormice streaking through our gardens. Which qualities enable these creatures of darkness to live a life without light, to hunt, to camouflage, to mate and to raise young?

Summary in German:
Sie sind geheimnisvoll und unheimlich, wir hören sie manchmal und sehen sie nie. In unserer nächsten Nähe zirpen die Heuschrecken, ertönen die schauerlichen Rufe der Eulen und Kauze, gehen die Füchse auf die Pirsch und streifen Siebenschläfer und Haselmäuse durch unseren Garten. Welche Eigenschaften befähigen diese Geschöpfe der Dunkelheit dazu, ein Leben ohne Licht zu führen, zu jagen, sich zu tarnen, sich zu paaren und Junge aufzuziehen? Entdecken Sie mit diesem außergewöhnlichen Bildband die verborgene Welt der Nachttiere: die faszinierenden Fotos und Geschichten von Naturfotograf Dietmar Nill lassen das Verhalten und die wunderbaren Fähigkeiten der Nachttiere lebendig werden.
