Australia has one of the richest and most diverse collections of reptiles in the world; more than 800 species have been described to date. 'A Complete Guide To Reptiles Of Australia' provides accounts of all of them and nearly all are illustrated with lively colour photographs showing them in their natural habitat. Whether you want to identify reptiles in the wild or in your garden, this book is for you.

Species are grouped in families, for example Skinks, Geckos, Monitors, Blind Snakes and Pythons. Each entry includes a distribution map, a description - with distinguishing features picked out in bold text - notes on a species' preferred habitat and range, information on subspecies and similar species and, wherever appropriate, the conservation status of that species. Extra photographs show most recognised subspecies, as well as differences within species and between sexes.

The book also explains how reptiles are classified, how scientific and common names are applied, how to measure a reptile and how conservation status is determined. Photographs of different reptile habitats will help you pinpoint the likely location of certain species.
