The Wolpertinger (also called Wolperdinger) is a fictitious animal supposedly living in the alpine forests of Bavaria in Germany. It has body parts of various animals - generally wings, antlers and fangs, all attached to the body of a small mammal. Stuffed Wolpertingers, composed of parts of real stuffed animals, are often displayed or sold as tourist souvenirs in their "native regions".
