Field Guide to the Reptiles of East Africa remains the definitive work on this subject and is the only comprehensive guide to the extensive and diverse reptile fauna of Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi. The second edition has been revised and updated to account for several significant discoveries made since the publication of the first book.
The detailed introduction is followed by individual accounts of all the chelonians, lizards, worm-lizards, crocodiles, and snakes of the region. Each photographically illustrated account describes the biology, ecology, habits, and habitat of a species, and also includes a distribution map.
The new paperback format, as well as the revised text and all new photographs, make this edition the only single-source, practical field guide to east African reptiles.
