Ultimate Guide to Snakes and Reptiles Summary


Ultimate Guide to Snakes and Reptiles by Derek Hall

This is an informative visual encyclopedia illustrated with over 465 stunning photographs. Lively and accessible information provides an insight into every aspect of reptile evolution, life and behaviour. It includes chapters on Tortoises and Turtles, Lizards, Snakes, the Tuatara and Crocodiles, with detailed descriptions of the different species. Survival tactics, habitats, reproduction and social behaviour is discussed for every type of reptile. Close-up colour photographs throughout bring each animal vividly to life. This is the perfect reference book for anyone interested in the natural world. The study of reptiles is a fascinating subject: some, like the chameleon, are able to change colour at will, while others move in unusual ways, such as the sidewinder snakes. They vary from tiny lizards to the large and fierce Komodo dragon, capable of devouring large mammals. Many are poisonous but most reptiles, rather than attack, prefer a quiet life and avoid human contact whenever they can. In this book, you can discover the secret world of the reptiles that slither, crawl and climb in the natural world, often unknown to their human neighbours. With a fascinating and informed text, illustrated throughout with stunning colour photographs, this comprehensive volume is the perfect reference for anyone with an interest in the natural world.
