Description

Reviews

Unique among lizards, the monitors are in some ways more like birds and mammals than like their smaller and less-active relatives. Their size and behavior have long made them objects of fascination and myth wherever they are found. The Komodo Dragon, the world's largest lizard, is a central tourist attraction in Indonesia. The author provides information on the anatomical and physiological traits that have made the varanids such successful and spectacular animals. He deals with their ecology and behavior in detail and includes a description, range map, diet, conservation status, and life history notes for each species along with almost 200 references on varanid lizards. General guidelines for captive care are included. The book contains essential information for the professional herpetologist, dedicated pet owner, and reptile enthusiast. (Short Blurb: Professor De Lisle provides information on the monitor's anatomical and physiological traits, their ecology and behavior, and provides description, range maps, diet, conservation status, and life history notes for each species along with almost 200 references. General guidelines for captive care are included.)

"A valuable reference for the professional herpetologist or reptile enthusiast." -- SciTech Book News, October 1996.
