Zambia and Malawi are home to 240 known snake, lizard, terrapin, tortoise and crocodile species; of these 13 snakes and lizards are endemic to the region. Field Guide to Snakes and Other Reptiles of Zambia and Malawi is the first book of its kind for the region, and describes every species of reptile known to occur in the two countries - including several new discoveries.
The book is organized into four sections reflecting the four orders: snakes, lizards, tortoises/terrapins and crocodiles. A comprehensive description of each order, suborder and family is followed by genera and species accounts. Each species account covers diagnostic features, subspecies/taxonomic notes (where applicable), habitat, behavior, prey and predators, reproduction and range, and whether the species is venomous and poses a danger to humans. The accounts are supported by stunning color photographs and up-to-date distribution maps that draw on over 16,000 recorded observations. Diagrammatic illustrations demonstrate morphological details useful for accurate identification. To aid identification, dichotomous identification keys (based predominantly on morphological differences) guide users to the correct genus and species.
The book's informative introduction includes descriptions and maps of the region's biogeography and diverse habitat types, as well as a discussion on different venom types and the basic principles of snakebite treatment.
This guide makes an important contribution to the literature on reptiles in Africa, and will appeal to both the novice and experienced herpetologist, as well as visitors the region and nature enthusiasts in general.
