This useful portable guide - perfect for visitors to this reptile-rich country - provides a comprehensive overview of the wide variety of snakes, lizards, crocodiles, and turtles and tortoises to be found there. More than 150 species, primarily native but with the odd exotic, are included in the book. Each description is supported by a clear colour photograph taken where possible in the reptile's natural habitat. The guide looks at the more common reptiles as well as focusing on some of the rarer, and in many cases highly endangered, species. This new edition has been thoroughly updated by the author to take into account changes in nomenclature and classification.
