Did you know that the frilled lizard can hop like a kangaroo? Or that the ridges on a boa constrictor’s body are where its ancestors had hindlegs? Or that the saltwater crocodile is the world’s largest reptile?
Dinosaurs were the very first reptiles, and while these great ‘thunder lizards’ may have long since become extinct, their descendants still stalk the Earth. From the armour-plated alligators of the African swamplands to the silent and deadly pythons of Asia’s lush jungles to the frilled lizard of northern Australia, reptiles are the real-life monsters of the modern world.
Snakes and Reptiles takes the reader on a fascinating journey of discovery of more than 80 animals. Each of the featured creatures is illustrated with a large, full-colour artwork and accompanied by easy-to-follow text, locator maps and information boxes (with each animal’s dimensions, diet, weapon, lifespan and Latin name).
With examples carefully drawn from different climates, this engaging and accessible volume reveals the spectacular and gruesome world of some of nature’s most diverse and adaptable animals.
