Der Feuersalamander -
 The Fire Salamander
Das ausgeprägte Waldtier ist an Laubwälder gebunden. In Waldrandlagen ist die Populationsdichte relativ hoch, weil hier oft das Nahrungsangebot groß ist. Wo der Wald verschwunden ist, kann der Feuersalamander sich als Faunenrelikt halten, wenn die klimatischen Bedingungen noch günstig sind. Besiedelt werden grundwassernahe Eichen-Birken- und Eichen-Hainbuchenwälder. Allerdings sind zum Beispiel überschwemmungsgefährdete Auwälder keine Feuersalamanderlebensräume, denn hier fehlen die „trockenen“ Versteckmöglichkeiten. Feuersalamander sind selten in Nadelforsten zu finden; sofern sie dort vorkommen, sind sie Relikte einer Population, die ehemals Laubwald bewohnte.
The fire salamander (Salamandra salamandra) is possibly the best-known salamander species in Europe. It is black with yellow spots or stripes to a varying degree. Fire salamanders live in central European forests and are more common in hilly areas. They prefer deciduous forests, since they like to hide in fallen leaves and around mossy tree trunks. They need small brooks or ponds with clean water in their habitat for the development of the larvae. Whether on land or in water, fire salamanders are inconspicuous. They spend much of their time hidden under wood or other objects. They are active in the evening and the night, but on rainy days they are active in daytime as well.
