About this book

Language: German

The 26 amphibians and reptiles found in Vienna, Austria, are presented in detail in this book. In addition, there are many stories about the herpetofauna, hiking tips for herpetologists (and those who want to become one) and further literature and also detailed information about our cold-blooded vertebrate cousins. Each species has a multi-page chapter with detailed descriptions of the animals and their habitats, distribution maps and beautiful pictures. QR codes, with which the calls of the amphibians can be called up using smartphones, round off the species portraits. The “special topics” are also very interesting. The spectrum of the 20 articles ranges from historical outlines, information about alien species and herpetophotography, to articles about Sochurek and Kammerer or a giant snake as a witness in a lawsuit about its dangerousness.

Summary in German:
Es werden die 26 in Wien vorkommenden Amphibien und Reptilien ausführlich vorgestellt. Ausserdem finden sich viele Geschichten rund um die Herpetofauna, Wandertipps für Herpetologinnen und Herpetologen (und solche, die es noch werden wollen) und weiterführende Literatur und auch ausführliche Informationen zu unseren wechselwarmen Mitbewohnern. Jeder Art ist ein mehrseitiges Kapitel mit genauen Beschreibungen der Tiere und ihrer Lebensräume, Verbreitungskarten und wunderschönen Bildern gewidmet. QR-Codes, mit denen die Rufe der Amphibien mittels Smartphones abgerufen werden können, runden die Artporträts ab. Sehr interessant sind auch die „Sonderthemen“. Das Spektrum der 20 Artikel reicht von sehr interessanten historischen Abrissen, Infos über gebietsfremde Arten und Herpetophotographie über Artikel über Sochurek und Kammerer bis hin zu einer Riesenschlange als Zeugin in einem Prozess zu ihrer Gefährlichkeit.
