Description

Reviews

Pritchard's monograph on the alligator snapping turtle, one of the world's most impressive, dangerous, and celebrated turtles, was first published in 1989. The initial small print run quickly sold out, and has become a valuable "rare book." This reprint edition duplicates the text of the original, but also includes a major new section outlining progress that has been made on the science and conservation of this species in the last 17 years.

"The Alligator Snapping Turtle is an indispensable addition to professional and academic library Biology and Natural Science reference collections in general, and the supplemental reading list, of turtle enthusiasts and wildlife conservationists in particular."--Midwest Book Review, Volume 16, Number 10, October 2006

"Here's a book about one of the most legendary and fearsome of the world's turtles, written by one of the foremost names in chelonian studies…This book presents a large amount of valuable and interesting information ranging from technical to anecdotal, about the awesome alligator snapping turtle." -- Steven Winchell, Reptilia, No. 48, October 2006

"This is not a "how to keep a snapping turtle" book, nor from reading is it a "scientific study".  What it is, is the work of a person dedicated to turtles who has amassed as much data, from a wide range of sources." -- Paul Bartle, The Herptile, 31:4, December 2006

"With the advent of an emphasis on turtle conservation on a global scale, the book is timely and will augment the limited information available on the ecology of what many consider a species that is threatened by a variety of human-related activities…" -- J. Whitfield Gibbons, $The Quarterly Review of Biology, Volume 83 Number 3, September 2008
