Media reviews

"Equal parts art, science, and empathy for wildlife, this book is not just a great contribution to the understanding and appreciation of herpetological fauna of the "magical archipelago", it is also a showcase for a new photographic technique to document reptiles at a resolution equivalent to that of a living reptile. Beautiful, informative, and fun to learn from, the Reptiles of Galápagos will be treasured by scientists, visitors, and local people of the Galápagos alike."
– Cristina Mittermeier, Sea Legacy
