Book Description

Oct. 1 2002 Ralph Curtis
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.

Format:Paperback
A handy booklet surveying the herpeto-fauna of the Indian subcontinent. A perfect companion for every traveller in India. This book is good to have if, against the odds, you should be bitten and then have to recognize the snake-species.
