Everyone has heard of the tuatara, New Zealand’s unique ‘living dinosaur’; but equally fascinating, if less well known, are the country’s other reptiles. There are more than 65 species of lizards (including skinks and geckos), frogs and other reptiles and amphibians native to New Zealand, and scientists such as author Tony Jewell are still discovering new species and subspecies today. In this new addition to a popular New Holland series, Tony covers all the known species from Northland to the far south; his text is backed up by outstanding photographs of their many geographic colour variants, so that readers will be equipped to identify almost any specimen encountered in the wild. This is a groundbreaking handbook and a superb aid for natural history enthusiasts, trampers and educationalists. pp. 143 #040815
