4.0 out of 5 stars Base Texts are Essential, just like this one!! March 19 2002
Format:Hardcover
I actually bought this book many years ago and consider it one of the best investments I have ever made. As a taxonomist and herpetologist for the past 15 years it has been the book I could always rely on for a quick, easy to look up reference for what someone else is talking about.
I read many articles, both scientific and general, many times they are not specifically about species I am immediately familiar with. This book has been my lifesaver. All packaged in one (rather hefty) volume in a way that is easily looked up I can find out exactly what someone else is talking about, see a picture, and get a little bit of information about the species. Its does not contain intimate details of each species, but that is not what it should be used for. It is like a big dictionary, but with pictures and a little extra information. I recommend this book not as one of your major texts but as a comprehensive list that will let you know what you are reading about when you are forced to admit you are outside your general knowledge. It will back up all your other readings.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great book for serious hobbyists. June 20 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is quite comprehensive in the sheer number of species of reptiles and amphibians which it covers. Although species are not covered in depth a great deal of useful information about natural history, identifcation and captive care is given. There are also many full color photographs .
The book is arranged alphabetically by scientific name. An index of common names is included to aid in finding specific species. However common names differ from region to region so the book is most useful to someone who is already somewhat familiar with the scientific names of reptiles and amphibians.
A great book for someone who is serious about herps and has general curiosity about reptiles and amphibians.

5.0 out of 5 stars Herp Atlas April 23 2000
By K Susan
Format:Hardcover
Probably the most comprehensive atlas of reptiles and amphibians, widely used in pet owners' as well as serious hobbyists' circles. It is arranged alphabetically by scientific name, while the index is arranged by common names. This generously illustrated book (mostly in color) provides general information on snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs, toads, salamanders, food animals as well as other terrarium related topics. A must in every herpetoculturist's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Dec 25 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a very fine book. It includes information on thousands of different herps that proves to be useful when you work at a pet store like I do. Although the info on each species is not very indepth, it does tell you where the species are from thus allowing you to create a naturalistic terrarium.
