The Natural History of Amphibians and Reptiles in Sabah: 2nd Edition is a review of the rich herpetofauna of Borneo, including some of its less conspicuous and sometimes reviled members. Many of the species are unique to Borneo, most are active only at night, and most are completely dependent on forests for survival. This book on the frogs, lizards, snakes, turtles, and crocodiles bring together photographs demonstrating that many of these animals are beautiful in colour and fascinating in form. Written for naturalists, students and travellers, the text provides information showing that not only is fear of the vast majority of the species misplaced but also how these animals fit into the complex workings of Borneo’s ecosystems.
