About this book

The Qatar Nature Explorer series offers a unique insight into Qatar's natural history and wildlife, and is an essential resource for schools and parents.

How can you tell the difference between a skink and a gecko? How do cold-blooded reptiles warm up? Which snake leaves S-shaped patterns on sand dunes?

From friendly house geckos to venomous sea snakes, Reptiles and Amphibians of Qatar introduces readers to the rich natural history of the country's varied terrain and also the seas that surround it. With interesting information about the variety, lifecycles and habits of the animals that inhabit these areas, Reptiles and Amphibians of Qatar is fun, easy-to-read and informative.
