Reptiles and Amphibians of East Africa

This lightweight and portable guide covers the 150 reptiles and 80 amphibians you are most likely to encounter across the five countries of East Africa--Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi. Encompassing a wealth of landscapes rare in tropical Africa, from deserts to rain forests to snow-capped mountains, this vast region is home to such famous national parks and game reserves as the Serengeti and the Selous in Tanzania and the Tsavo and the Maro in Kenya. Here you will find a corresponding wealth of secretive yet often unwittingly conspicuous tortoises, lizards, crocodiles, snakes, and frogs. Reptiles and Amphibians of East Africa offers concise and accessible, identification-oriented text, color photographs, and color distribution maps for each species. Distilled and adapted in part from the highly acclaimed A Field Guide to the Reptiles of East Africa by the same authors, this new guide is pocket-size, easy to use, and affordably priced. Reptiles and Amphibians of East Africa is an indispensable resource for any ecotourist, anyone on safari, and even the casual visitor to the region, all of whom will see many of these species without even hunting for them.
