About this book

Language: German

This book is a comprehensive account of the lizards of the genus Sauromalus. These amazing animals are perfectly adapted to hot, dry habitats. Populations are strikingly coloured black, red or white. This makes it an impressive experience to observe Chuckwallas sunbathing on exposed rocks in the Arizona desert.

Summary in German:
Dieses Buch ist eine umfassende Darstellung der Echsen der Gattung Sauromalus. Diese faszinierenden Tiere sind als Wüstenbewohner perfekt an trocken-heiße Lebensräume angepasst und besonders die Männchen mancher Populationen sind auffallend kontrastreich schwarz, rot oder weiß gefärbt. So ist es ein beeindruckendes Erlebnis, Chuckwallas beim Sonnenbaden auf exponierten Felsen in der Wüste Arizonas zu beobachten.
