Gunter Schultschik

GÜNTER SCHULTSCHIK started keeping newts and salamanders as a boy and still considers himself just an enthusiast. After getting in contact with AG-Urodela of DGHT in 1989, his collection grew rapidly. J.F. Schmidtler (Munich) was his teacher when he began to travel through Anatolia and the Middle East searching for amphibians and reptiles. As a member of the Austrian Herpetological Society, he founded “Urodela-Austria” a working group which has a meeting once a year, the “Molchlertag.” After some publications together with W. Grosse, they started a project called “Captive Care Management” for threatened species of tailed amphibians, which will be published soon in the DGHT series Mertensiella.
