Description

Our amphibians and reptiles hold a fascination for young and old alike. Often very beautiful and frequently misunderstood, they are worthy of closer acquaintance and greatly reward attentive study in the field. The definitive ROM Field Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians of Ontario is researched, written, and designed specifically for the Ontario reader and visitor. It is the most authoritative, easy to use, and beautifully designed guide available, with a stunning selection of photographs unsurpassed anywhere.

This landmark publication features:

•Detailed and clearly written descriptions of every species of amphibian and reptile in Ontario – mudpuppies, newts, salamanders, toads, frogs, turtles, skinks, and snakes – including notes on Appearance, Habitat and Behaviour, Reproduction (including mating calls), and Status.
•Stunning full-colour photographs from Canada’s top wildlife photographers, carefully selected for quick and easy identification in the field.
•Easy-to-read Ontario and North America colour distribution maps.
•Handy size and format, with photos, description, and range maps for each species all on one page spread.
•Glossary, Checklists, and Index.

This unique guide, produced in association with one of Canada’s most widely recognized and popular scientific and cultural institutions, is the guide to the fascinating world of Ontario’s reptiles and amphibians.
