About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and German

Central and South American turtles - including the impressive Galapagos tortoises as well as the various genera of the family Chelidae - are covered in this third volume. It serves as supplement to volume two by presenting the remaining members of the genera Chelydra, Kinosternon, Rhinoclemmys, Terrapene, and Trachemys. Where possible, more than one individual is shown, as well as photos of their habitat, sexual dimorphism, peculiarities of the carapace and plastron, mating, oviposition, hatching, and juveniles.Descriptive symbols of their captive needs appear for each species.
