An Instant Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians
by Pamela Forey and Cecilia Fitzsimons
An Instant Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians is an ideal compact identification guide to the most familiar reptiles and amphibians of North America. Most amphibians can be found in or near water while lizards and snakes seek drier environments. This book helps you to recognize the most common species of both that you are likely to encounter.
This user-friendly guide assumes no previous knowledge: an easy-to-follow system of color-coded bands (denoting type of animal) and habitat symbols leads quickly to the correct section of the book. Detailed full-color illustrations, concise informative text, and a distribution map allow you to make a positive identification. Symbols also warn you of aggressive, toxic or dangerous animals.
