Reviews - What do customers think about A Guide to Reptiles & Amphibians of Egypt?

Great and first guide to the region  Jan 10, 2007
Finally a guide that covers Egypt in a understanding matter.

No highly scientific drawings in black and white, but nice colour photography,distribution maps and some drawings.
More photos would have been welcomed especially to show the colour differents between lizards/snakes of the same species in different regions...
But then the book would be a lot more expensive.

It is clearly made for a broad audience, from scientists to herp fanatics to tourists.
