About this book

Language: English

Reptiles form a large and very fascinating group of animals. All reptiles are vertebrates. Reptiles living at the present time are classified in four orders – Crocodilia (crocodíles and alligators), Squamata (lizards and snakes), Chelonia (tortoises and turtles) and Rhynchocephalia (tuataras). Reptiles represent some of the oldest living species on the planet. Known for being cold-blooded creatures whose bodies are covered in dry, horny scales, reptiles typically are not considered to be of great signifìcanee, but the reptile species is actually quite important to human beings in several different ways.

This book has been offered in fulfïlment of the long felt need to have a comprehensive book on the reptiles of the world with illustrations and complete descriptions of each and every reptile found in India and abroad, be it on land or on water. A thorough knowledge acquired by reading the book equips one when confronted with a reptile unexpectedly, to take a quick decision whether to fight it to finish or to file past discretely.
