Welcome to the DGHT Shop

The "Deutsche Gesellschaft für Herpetologie und Terrarienkunde e.V. (DGHT)", meaning German Society for Herpetology and Herpetoculture, was founded in 1964 as a successor of the group called "Salamander" which originates from the year 1918. As the name implies, the DGHT covers non-professionals and professionals in herpetology and herpetoculture within a single organisation, thus giving our society its particular strength. Our members work with amphibians and reptiles as it concerns research and husbandry, as well as conservation of species and their habitats.

New Herpetology in Bonn

This book contains an overview of all herpetological research activities that ever took place in Bonn, during the time span from 1809 to 2014. The first part is devoted to university-based research on amphibians and reptiles until today, with a focus on the former natural history museum of Bonn founded with the Prussian university in 1818. It was followed by the Museum Alexander Koenig (ZFMK) which established an own herpetology section in 1951. Its fast-growing herpetological collection comprises now more than 100.000 specimens.
A nucleus of the book is a new, critically evaluated and commented type catalogue with type material of nearly 670 species group taxa. The role of ZFMK’s herpetology in respect to herpetological societies, to teaching and supervising diploma and doctoral students as well as to public education is also described. The author will not conceal that this book is also meant as a kind of balance of what he did at ZFMK in the past four decades.

New Sachkunde Gefährliche Reptilien (in German)

Die Sachkunde der Tierhalter steht immer mehr im Mittelpunkt der öffentlichen Diskussion. Die Sachkunde GbR hat nun ein Schulungskonzept für die künftigen Halter von Arten dieser Tiergruppe entwickelt und damit dem Gesetzgeber die Möglichkeit eingeräumt, anstelle eines Verbotes eine Sachkundeschulung im Parlament zu diskutieren. Zum Schulungskonzept, das in Kürze einer breiten Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt wird, gehört ein Lehrbuch, in dem alle wesentlichen Aspekte der Haltung von Giftschlangen, Riesenschlangen und Krokodilen abgehandelt werden. 
Die DGHT konnte namhaft bekannte Zoologen und Tiergärtner sowie sehr erfahrene Terrarianer dazu gewinnen, dieses Fachbuch zu schreiben, das sicher auch in der professionellen Tierhaltung ein wichtiges Lehr- und Nachschlagewerk sein wird.
