About this book

This is a lightweight and portable guide, partly adapted from the popular and highly acclaimed A Field Guide to the Reptiles of East Africa by the same authors. Covering the most prominent 150 reptiles and 80 amphibians found in the region (Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi), with concise text, photographs and a map for each, this is a convenient and attractive pocket guide for a diverse and often conspicuous group of animals.

Portable, user-friendly and relatively inexpensive, Pocket Guide to the Reptiles and Amphibians of East Africa is an indispensable field companion for anyone who may be interested in learning more about East Africa's herpetofauna. SWARA (April-June 2006) " this invaluable book will doubtless also spawn exciting new discoveries." SWARA (April-June 2006) "For anyone with a general interest in wildlife, a comprehensible, portable, and fairly comprehensive field guide is a must. This pocket guide fulfils these criteria." Scottish Bird News (September 2006)
