This comprehensive field guide covers 42 native turtles, lizards, and snakes which would be found in the region from southern Alaska to California and from the Great Divide to the Pacific coast.
Stunning color photos, range maps and notes on identification, distribution, habitat and behavior offer insight into the fascinating lives of the animals, and field notes relate the author's own experience with each species.
The accounts are grouped and color coded for quick identification. All the species are shown in a 3-page Quick Reference Guide. Also included is a guide to reptile habitats in the Northwest, as well as answers to frequently asked questions, illustrated keys to the species, and a life list for your own notes.
This book was awarded the 2002 Western U.S. Book Design and Production Award for best guide or travel book.
