The Snakes of Sulawesi is yet another excellent field guide in the Chimaira herpetology series. It represents the first complete work on the snakes of Sulawesi, covering 54 species and subspecies. Beautiful photographs and dot range maps complement descriptions of distribution (within Sulawesi, Indonesia and the world), scale counts, body form, colouration, habitat, biology, venom and conservation status. Identification keys and scutellation tables enable the user to identify any taxon and the extensive bibliography provides citations to all relevant literature on Sulawesi Snakes.
This book is an essential field companion, conservation guide, laboratory prospectus and biology text on the snakes of Sulawesi. It belongs in every herpetology library!
