Liechtenstein's seasons are very distinct and,
due to its small size, there are few regional variations. Winters (December-March)
don't get as cold as some neighboring countries (average about 32˚ F (0˚ C)),
but at elevation it's a little cooler and snow is common.
Summers in Liechtenstein have average temperatures
between 65-75˚ F (18-24˚ C), with, again, slightly lower temperatures at elevation.
Although a small country, Liechtenstein has a large
number of alpine mammals that live in the country's mountains and forests or
pass through regularly. Deer, marmots, fox, and other small mammals are common.
Pheasants, partridges, and other birds are also common. There is almost no sea life
as there are only a few small rivers passing through the landlocked country.
