In German folklore, a wolpertinger,also called wolperdinger or woiperdinger, is a mythical animal said to inhabit the alpine forests of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg in southern Germany. It has a body comprising various animal parts—generally wings, antlers, a tail, and fangs, all attached to the body of a small mammal. The most widespread description portrays the Wolpertinger as having the head of a rabbit, the body of a squirrel, the antlers of a deer, and the wings and occasionally the legs of a pheasant.
