Reptiles and Amphibians of New Zealand: A Field Guide

Author(s): Dylan van Winkel; Marleen Baling; Rod Hitchmough

NZ Nature | SUMMER READING GUIDE

Illustrated with extraordinary new photography, this is the definitive field guide to all of New Zealand's tuatara, geckos, skinks, frogs, marine turtles and marine snakes. From the ancient tuatara, the sole surviving member of its order, to the world's largest collection of long-lived and live-bearing lizards, our geckos and skinks, New Zealand's 123 species of reptiles and amphibians represent an extraordinary aspect of this country's biodiversity. Reptiles and Amphibians of New Zealand is the only field guide to cover all currently recognised species. New Zealand's list of reptiles and amphibians is growing with new discoveries, even as 80 per cent of species are at risk of extinction. This will be the only field guide to cover all currently recognised reptiles and amphibians and will become a go-to book for anyone interested in New Zealand's unique wildlife.
