Abstract:

In the style of our Frogs and Snakes, Lizards combines excellent vivid color 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 behaviors of 29 species of chameleons, geckos, skinks, anoles, iguanas, monitors, and other lizards. He discusses physical characteristics and behaviors, the natural history of selected species, the curious relationship between lizards and humans, and the current threats to lizard populations and habitats. Featuring 100+ full-color photographs by the late renowned nature photographer John Netherton, Lizards is a fascinating look at a fascinating creature.
