From the adorable painted-belly monkey frog to the comical Parsons chameleon to the terrifying Komodo dragon and the venomous Gila monster, Reptiles and Amphibians presents a weird and wonderful array of critters in all their scaly, moist, vibrantly colored, and beady-eyed glory. Nearly 200 photos showcase 91 reptiles and amphibians from all over the worldeach in a riveting, intimate portrait and then again in a thumbnail photograph showing their entire body and accompanied by a detailed caption. Reptiles and Amphibians lets you stare eye-to-eye at these fascinating and, in many cases, rarely glimpsed creatures. Thankfully, this may be the only time you come face-to-face with a humphead forest dragon.
