2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Laszlo Wagner on 9 Jan. 2005
Format: Hardcover
This book is amazingly detailed, giving in-depth information on ALL species of reptile known to occur in the five countries covered.
The photographs are of excellent quality (though where none was available, drawings would have been better than nothing) and the keys very user-friendly.
It is an absolute must for anyone interested in the herpetofauna of this region. A word of warning though: despite the title this book is much too bulky and heavy to carry around on the field! More likely, you will want to keep it at home (or in your car?) as a reference.

dissapointed 7 Sept. 2011
By showjet95 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read reviews saying how informative and complete this book was, especially on chameleons of east africa. I was extremely disappointed with the lack of species covered and how little information it gives on even the little it did cover. It didnt even know if some of the species laid eggs or if the males used the horns for battle! lol. I also have the chameleons of africa book by tilbury and that book is absolutely amazing. I was surprised to see just how many species of chameleons from east africa were not even in this book. It does have a cool cover tho!:)
