About this book

Amphibians and Reptiles of the Chicago Area, first published in 1947, is the classic work on the snakes, frogs, salamanders, turtles, and other "herps" of the Chicago region (southeast Wisconsin, northwest Illinois, northwest Indiana, and southwest Michigan). Illustrated throughout with detailed drawings and organized into the major groups (Amphibians: Salamanders and Frogs; Reptiles: Lizards, Snakes, and Turtles), each species found in the region is described, with extensive information on its life-history, habitat requirements, and food preferences. Easy-to-use field keys for identifying each species are also included.
