About this book

Reptile expert and TV presenter Mark O'Shea's beautifully written in-depth descriptions of the world's lizards include an individual account for each genus and tales of his personal encounters with these creatures from all over the world. This is the first part of the most comprehensive guide ever written on the subject. The first installment looks at the geckos and their allies, many of which have amazing adaptations. The series will cover all the world's lizard families, including iguanas, agamas, chameleons, skinks and monitor lizards, as well as the worm-lizards and tuataras.

Species covered in detail range from the mighty three-metre Komodo Dragon of Indonesia to the miniscule dwarf chameleons of Madagascar and least geckos of the West Indies. Illustrated throughout with spectacular photographs, many of them the author's own, this book celebrates the diversity and beauty of lizards worldwide. It will appeal to amateur and professional reptile enthusiasts alike, and will become the benchmark title on the subject.
