Guide and Reference to the Turtles and Lizards of Western North America (North of Mexico) and Hawaii surveys the 168 species of turtles and lizards that reside west of the Rocky Mountains (north of Mexico) and in Hawaii. Species are grouped alphabetically by scientific name within each order. Colour photographs are accompanied by descriptive text that details the appearance, naturally occuring colour morphs, behaviour, range/habitat, and prey of each species - as well as species with which it may be confused.
Information on how to search for herpetofauna, habitat descriptions, and captive care makes this guide the perfect resource for amateur or professional naturalists. It is also ideal for individuals living in or visiting a western state who are curious about the natural world around them.
