The Reptiles of the Limpopo Province and Kruger National Park Their Ecology, Behaviour and Distribution
The Kruger National Park is home to 125 of South Africa’s 434 species.
All except six of these living gems also occur in the Limpopo Province, from which a staggering total of 204 species are known. 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 are newly described and have never been pictured in a popular field guide, while many have undergone significant taxonomic revision. This volume is packed with first-hand information and brings the region’s 210 species and their habitats to life with more than 600 photographs. This book is an indispensable resource for any serious African herpetologist, ecologist, nature guide, game ranger and hunter.
Nevertheless, it is purposefully crafted to oﬀer a gateway into the fascinating world of reptiles for enthusiasts, budding naturalists and the youth.
