With its valleys, slopes and mountains, Liechtenstein's diverse landscape is home to a wide variety of animals and plants. Photographer Roland Rick captured four wild animals in their natural environment with his camera.

The "Fox" (face value: CHF 1.00) can be found in forests, meadows and occasionally in urban areas. It is an omnivore and, in addition to mice and insects, does not shy away from food scraps, waste and carrion. The "Squirrel" (face value: CHF 1.20) usually has a similar reddish colour to the fox. This native rodent can be recognised by its white-coloured belly.

The "Marmot" (face value: CHF 1.90) lives in the Alpine region above the tree line. It spends ninety per cent of its life in burrows it has built itself with extensive tunnel systems. If the marmot manages to escape its natural enemy, the golden eagle, it can live up to fifteen years. Weighing up to two hundred kilograms, the "Stag" (face value: CHF 2.50) is the largest wild animal in our range. The males have a mane on their neck and antlers that grow larger and more complex over the years.
