References to lizards in pop culture have brought the largest group of reptiles into the public eye lately, prompting more people to keep the colourful creatures as pets. This book combines excellent vivid colour photography with interesting, entertaining text that details the lives of a variety of lizards. The result is an enlightening and often amusing book. In an easy-to-read conversational tone, David Badger provides a general overview of lizards and then digs deeper, exploring the specific characteristics and behaviours of 29 species of chameleons, geckos, skinks, iguanas, monitors, and other lizards. He discusses physical characteristics and behaviours of lizards, the natural history of selected species, the curious relationship between lizards and humans, and the current threats to lizard populations and their habitats. Features 102 full-colour photographs by the late renowned nature photographer John Netherton, this is a fascinating look at a fascinating creature.
