The Reptiles of the Limpopo Province and Kruger National Park Their Ecology, Behaviour and Distribution by Ruan I Stander


One hundred and twenty five reptiles of South Africa’s 434 species call Kruger National Park home.  With the exception of six, all of these also enhabit the Limpopo Province.  The region boasts the highest reptile diversity in South Africa – half of the country’s herpetofauna occurs here and more than 40 species are endemic. Several speicies are newly described, and have never been pictured in a field guide before, and many others have undergone significant taxonomic revision. This volume has been written with an abundance of information, and brings the region’s 210 species and their habitats to life.  This book is an invaluable resource for any serious  herpetologist,  naturalist, ecologist or nature guide. This book includes: family and genus accounts, a detailed overview of the region's biogeography, habitats and centres of endemism, field notes supplemented with the latest data available, 
author citation and type locality provided for each species, Indigenous-language common names for all species, in four languages – a first for an African reptile field guide and colour-coded provincial and country-scale distribution maps.
