This handbook offers an illustrated guide to over 250 of the snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs and salamanders common to the Amazonian regions of Peru, Brazil, Bolivia and Colombia. From brightly coloured frogs so small that they fit on a thumbnail to large poisonous snakes camouflaged by green and brown patterned skin, it features all the more frequently seen species as well as types that are less common, and it also provides basic natural history information. Close-up photographs accompany text that describes appearance, range, size and colour and lists similar species.

Reviews for Reptiles and Amphibians of the Amazon: An Ecotourist's Guide

The Bartlett's provide a convenient identification guide and reference manual for the reptiles and amphibians most likely to be encountered by visitors to the Amazon basin. It will be of great interest to ecotourists and herpetological hobbyists, and the basic natural history information will be useful to professional biologists who are not specialists in the taxa covered in the book.
