Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Peterson Field Guide series are a must-have for cottagers, as they are perfect in identifying animals and learning their habits. This book is especially useful in identifying snakes, lizards, turtles, etc., and knowing what to do in case of a confrontation (for example, identifying a rattlesnake, and knowing how to be safe around them). Please buy this book, especially those who have a cottage. Even perusing through it every once in a while will really help you understand the environment you live in, and will help you take precautions, stay safe, and learn a LOT!

If you enjoy herping anywhere in eastern north america then this is definately the guide for you. Has every species listed with pictures, as well as all the information you would need in order to understand and find them.

There is no other guide which I would consult prior to herping trips. The color plates are fantastic and so well-drawn that I can recall seeing the animals depicted in the field. A knowledge of the arrangement of this guide will make this the most easily perused guide in the field as well.
Any budding herpetologist would be wise to study the book from cover to cover in order to share in the wisdom of Conant/Collins.
The field guide is easy to read (though technical details are necessarily prevalent) and can be understood by even the least herpetologically-inclined person.

Format: Paperback
This book has been a faithfull field companion to countless herpers since the first edition was published in 1958. It is the best selling herp book of all time for a good reason. The text is both concise and comprehensive. The color plates are not only works of art but are designed to highlight markings that are useful for field identification. The images in most competitors are generally the most attractive color photos available. This makes a pretty book but is not always useful for identification. The book is also small enough to be unobtrusive in any backpack or large pant pocket. Many of the "field guides" being produced now are too large and heavy. My copy has stood up to years of abuse remarkably well. This version added excellent color photographs to compliment the original color plates. The one criticism I have is that this version spread the maps throughout the text. Previous editions had the maps bundled together in taxanomic order. Imagine you are trying to identify a skink in Missouri. In the previous editions you could flip open the book to the skink maps and immediately see which species are found in Missouri. In this edition you would have to flip through all of the skink species accounts to get that information. It does not seem like a big difference,unless you have ever attempted to hold onto a skink in Missouri. Overall I would have to characterize this book as a must have for any North American herper young or old.

Format: Paperback
A useful guide to help identify specimens. They profile similiar species in similar poses, very helpful. It doesn't offer as many species as the RTP guides, but then RTP guides don't show photos. I also suspect that the guide I have isn't as likely to handle weathering (mud/rain/etc) as well as the RTP bindings.
