About this book

Reptiles and amphibians are among Egypt's most successful wildlife, found in almost every habitat in the country, from homes to fields and the desert itself. For the first time, "A Guide to the Reptiles and Amphibians of Egypt" provides concise, reliable, and up-to-date information on all Egypt's principal species, with detailed material on their taxonomy, identification, natural history, and ecology.

Based on fifteen years of fieldwork, this guide is a valuable tool for experts and amateurs alike in the identification, study, and conservation of these fascinating animals. With an easy-to-use key, high-quality maps, and over 100 color illustrations, this field guide covers 110 species - including tortoises and turtles, lizards, snakes, and crocodiles - found in Egypt. Each entry contains concise information about the species, including English, Latin, and Arabic names; world and Egypt distribution; distinguishing features; habitat and ecology; behavior; and conservation status. Included too are line drawings to illustrate key identification features and differences between species. With a comprehensive bibliography for further research, the guide supplies the accuracy and scientific rigor that scientists look for, while providing an accessible approach for generalists and amateurs. For biologists, nature lovers and anyone interested in Egypt's rich natural heritage, "A Guide to the Reptiles and Amphibians of Egypt" is an ideal reference tool.
