Drawing on the latest scientific research, the authors introduce the book with a discussion of reptile identification, diversity, biology, distribution patterns, and where to find and observe them, as well as unraveling the facts and fallacies of snakebites.

Written in a lively and accessible way, the subsequent chapters offer insight into: * Identification to group level, with an inclusive list of related species * A detailed description of appearance, together with colorful images * Biology and behavior of each group * Conservation status of species * Reproduction details * Distribution Informative panels provide key information at a glance, with a distribution map and clear icons giving typical habitat and period of activity. A wealth of full-color photographs throughout brings the subject matter vividly to life. This book will appeal to all wildlife enthusiasts, both professional and amateur, and will prove to be a valuable guide in the field.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nice but dissapointing...  Jun 18, 2008
Finally i received my copy of the guide to the reptiles of southern Africa !

The lay out is exactly the same as the other Johan Marais book, snakes of southern Africa, and as i think snakes of is great i was very dissapointed by the reptiles of book.

Why you are asking ? Well i have got the impression that the book is the snakes of southern africa with a little addition,an addition that is not specified enough.
The snakes are allready cramped together,dwarf bitis species for example are put together as dwarf adders and are generally spoken of,snakes so special for the region merit it to be seperated into species instead of being piled together.

The lizard chapter was for me the most dissapointing part. All the lizards (few exeptions) are cramped together in little family groups and not described or shown seperated on the maps, a big mis as a lot of the reptiles of southern Africa have a small distribution range. Why i ask myself ? Mister Marais is capable of making great books as shown before,photowork is great,lay out,but not it is not enough in my opinion.

So if you want to know something about the reptiles of southern africa,this book is great. Do you need some expert advise on distribution,species etc...sorry this is not what you need.
better books excist: Snakes of southern africa,Chameleons of southern africa and the southern african tortoise book still rule....
