Description

Reviews

With their unique flora and fauna, Madagascar and the nearby islands in the Indian Ocean region are among the most interesting destinations for professional and amateur naturalists, herpetologists, and those keeping amphibians and reptiles as pets. This work is a very accessible guide to the herpetofauna of the area and comes complete with information on the regional climate and vegetation, as well as with information on vivarium care. Descriptions of 240 species of frogs, turtles and tortoises, chameleons, geckos, iguanas and agamas, skinks, and snakes are provided. For each species, the description includes information on distribution, habitat, characteristic features, as well as some general comments on natural history. Two hundred sixty-nine high quality color photographs simplify identification. Final translation and technical edit by Hinrich Kaiser, PhD.

"A well-written, superbly illustrated, easy-to-read book. An extensive readership among conservationists, naturalists, herpetologists, and zoogeographers can be anticipated." -- E.D. Keiser, University of Missisippi, CHOICE, January 2001

"… This beautifully illustrated book packed with 272 color pictures taken in nature can be read and enjoyed almost as much as being there. I urge anyone with an interest in herps to read this book, and own a copy if possible." -- Dave Hyatt, Sonoran Herpetologist, 14 (4) 2001

"In general, this is a lavish text… The species accounts are concise and well organized. The accompanying photograph of the animal is on the same page or opposite page, rather than in a plate at the front or back of the book… the photography is spectacular." -- Michael Garner, DVM, DACVP, Journal of Herpetological Medicine and Surgery, Vol.11, No.2, 2001

"The pictures are exceptional, and the text clearly laid out, to allow the reader to quickly locate the needed information… Anyone even faintly interested in herpetology will find this book enjoyable for browsing or serious reading." -- Sandra C. Wilson, DVM, MS, Animal Keepers' Forum, Vol.28, No.7, 2001
