Description

This useful guide provides a comprehensive overview of the wide variety of snakes, lizards, crocodiles, turtles and tortoises to be found in India. Over 240 species, primarily native but with the odd exotic, are included in the book. Each description is supported by a clear colour photograph taken where possible in the creature's natural Indian habitat. The guide looks at the more common species such as the Travancore Wolf Snake and the Indian Black Turtle and also focuses on some of the rarer, and in some cases highly endangered, species such as the King Cobra, the unique Gharial crocodile and the Indian Star Tortoise.
