About this book

Describes most of the abundant and otherwise typical representatives of crocodiles, turtles, lizards and snakes that any citizen of the Republic of India is likely to encounter. The descriptions of reptiles are supplemented by as many illustrations as possible. Each species account, which pinpoints the distinctive features, colour, size, habitats, habits and distribution, is preceded by a brief summary of the classification up to the generic level and salient features of the group to which the species belongs.

Additional information is given through remarks on the economic importance, threats and conservation of reptiles.
