This latest addition to the popular What’s that? series introduces beginners to the diverse reptile fauna of southern Africa, including its snakes, lizards, crocodiles, tortoises, terrapins and turtles. The book encourages readers first to study reptiles in their broader natural groups before taking them to the next stage, namely identification of the species.
