The western half of the United States is home to a huge array of reptiles and amphibians—from the rare and curious to those that can be found in parks and backyards. You just have to know where to look for them. Sea Turtles to Sidewinders is here to help. This user-friendly guide contains lucid descriptions and dazzling photographs—all taken in the wild—of the most interesting and likely-to-be-encountered lizards, snakes, turtles, and amphibians native to Arizona, California, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington, plus the western parts of Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. This book starts with helpful introductory material offering information on conservation, how to find and identify reptiles and amphibians, and how to spot species safely. The species profiles make up the bulk of the book, sharing details like size, food, color photographs, and fun facts.
