Snakes and Reptiles: The Scariest Cold-Blooded Creatures on Earthby Susan Barraclough (Editor)
From the deadly Emerald
Dinosaurs were the very first reptiles, and while these great “thunder lizards” may have long since vanished, their descendants still stalk the Earth. From the silent and deadly pythons of Asia’s lush jungles, to the armor-plated alligators of the African swamplands, reptiles are the real-life monsters of the modern world.
From the deadly Emerald tree boa snake to the colorful poison-arrow frog, Snakes and Reptiles takes the reader on a fascinating journey of discovery. Snakes, lizards, turtles, crocodiles, alligators, and amphibians are all featured in this stunning selection of the earth’s scariest cold-blooded creatures.
Each of the featured creatures is illustrated with large, full-color artwork and accompanied by easy-to-follow text, locator maps, and information boxes designed to enhance the learning experience. With examples carefully drawn from every part of the world, this engaging and accessible volume of Snakes and Reptiles reveals the spectacular and gruesome world of some of nature’s most diverse and adaptable animals.
