SNAKES & REPTILES
By Andrew Cleave
9 x 12 3/4 in. (235 x 325mm) 80 pages. Hardcover. 100 illustrations. This volume is a fast-moving introduction to these intriguing, resourceful, often misunderstood creatures.

Here the diverse nature of the various reptile groups is fully detailed followed by a look at a great variety of snakes - including anacondas, boas, pythons, cobras, and rattlesnakes - as well as other reptiles such as lizards, iguanas, geckoes, chameleons, turtles, alligators, and crocodiles.
