Most amphibian species overwinter buried in the ground, often under a pile of branches, under larger decaying trunks, and larger stones. Yellow-bellied toad, Carpathian newt, Common tree frog are strictly protected species, others are partially protected. Amphibians eat numerous invertebrates, including mosquito larvae and land slugs.
On the edges of the Carpathian forests, the presence of several species of reptiles is possible: Sand Lizard (Lacerta agilis), Viviparous Lizard (Zootoca vivipara), Slowworm (Anguis fragilis), Grass Snake (Natrix natrix), Common European Viper (Vipera berus). These species are thermophilic and are more often found in sunny, stony places, in thickets, in adjacent meadows and pastures. These species are partially protected, they play an important role in nature, hunting insects and small vertebrates, regulating their numbers.
