What's that reptile? Introduces beginners to the diverse reptile fauna of southern Africa, including its snakes, lizards, crocodiles, tortoises, terrapins and turtles. The book encourages readers first to study reptiles in their broader natural groups before taking them to the next stage of identification, namely the species. The text is simple and accessible, giving helpful information on the appearance, distribution, habitat, behaviour, diet and breeding habits of species. Interesting fact boxes and an abundance of clear, colourful photographs bring these remarkable creatures vividly to life.
