In this compact photographic guide, clear colour photographs show the general build, distinctive coloration and scale pattern of each snake and other reptiles to aid identification in the field. Thumbnail silhouettes are used to lead the reader to the reptile group most closely resembling the species seen. The text concentrates on key identification features but also gives information on location, breeding, venom, and other interesting characteristics. Distribution maps pinpoint the areas in which the snakes occur, and also denote the racial differences that occur among reptile groups in different regions. Other titles in the series include Birds of southern Africa, Birds of Namibia, Rocks, minerals and fossils, and Southern African Trees.
