Written as an introduction to the natural history of lizards, this book helps to answer the many questins that both amateur and professional naturalists ask about these animals. It examines the origins, form, function, colour, environment, feeding, defense, reproduction, movement, and distribution of lizards, from the tiny, tropical geckos to the huge Komodo dragon. The author also discusses lizards in captivity and their relationship with humans, and describes the entire range of the lizard families. Reissue: First published in 1992.
