Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Franck Bonin, Bernard Devaux, and Alain Dupr have traveled the world together to study turtles in their natural habitats. In this complete guide to the world's nearly 300 species of turtles, the authors reveal intimate, little-known details of these intriguing reptiles in their native habitats: what they eat, where they live, how they behave, and when and where they lay their eggs.

Book News Annotation:

This beautifully illustrated reference includes all the turtles one can ever imagine, ranging from the flat and prehistoric carapaces to the fat and majestic Testudio terrestris. Here are nearly 300 species of turtles, photographed where they reside, with text describing their nomenclature, habits, food, behavior, reproductive rituals, and sociability. This is so well done that readers who are not even turtle enthusiasts will enjoy it.
