About this book

Language: English with bilingual keys in English and Spanish

This splendidly illustrated book by the foremost authority on the herpetology of the Yucatán (here defined as including Guatemela and Belize) comprehensively documents the natural history of all 182 native and introduced species of frogs, toads, salamanders, snakes, lizards, turtles and crocodiles. The species accounts summarize their natural history, including behaviour, diet, and reproductive biology, and comments on the taxonomic status. The common names are given in English and Spanish, and in Mayan dialects. Dichotomous keys (in both English and Spanish) identify orders, families, and genera. The introductory chapters cover the peninsula's environment, habitats, and herpetofaunal composition. There is also a history of herpetology in the area.
