Translated from the original German edition (1992), this two-volume
reference is authoritative and comprehensive. It begins with the care
and husbandry of lizards in the vivarium and then descibes all known
families of lizards. For each species, the author outlines geographic
distribution and natural habitats and lifestyles, and draws heavily
from the firsthand experiences of herpetological enthusiasts in
discussing husbandry practices. Detailed descriptions and copious
color photos illustrate physical characteristics.
