Product Description

Synopsis

Sub-Saharan Africa has 18 tortoises, 5 softshelled terrapins, 18 side-necked terrapins and 6 turtles - a total of 47 species (Chelonians). This book, in the mould of Chameleons, will discuss this ancient group of reptiles - what they are, body plan (anatomy), where they occur (habitats), and behaviour. All species will then be examined according to description, distribution and habitat, biology with accompanying photographs of the species and its typical habitat. A final section will deal with folklore and uses, relationship with mankind; threats; and survival in captivity.

Format: Paperback
Few books written for the general reader will satisfy the specialist as well.This book on the chelonians of Africa is one that does. It is exceptional in the amount of hard data it manages to include in a totally digestible form. High quality illustrations and a very attractive layout are combined with readable text to produce a model of clarity and conciseness.

Format: Paperback
A very informative book. The introduction covers all tortoises/turtles excellently and the main topic of the book is exceptionally well illustrated. This book was easy to read and very informative.
