Turtles of the World
Johns Hopkins University Press, Sep 7, 2006 - Nature - 416 pages
From the familiar painted turtle basking on a log to the majestic long-lived giant tortoises, turtles are among the most fascinating animals on the planet. For many years Franck Bonin, Bernard Devaux, and Alain Dupré have traveled the world together to study turtles in their natural habitats. In this complete guide to the world's nearly 300 species of turtles, the authors reveal intimate, little-known details of these intriguing reptiles in their native habitats: what they eat, where they live, how they behave, and when and where they lay their eggs.
Originally written in French, the text has been translated by one of the world's leading turtle experts, Peter C. H. Pritchard. The result is a beautifully written and illustrated book that belongs on the shelf of every library, public and private. Written for the millions of turtle lovers and nature enthusiasts who will find answers to their questions within its pages, this book is bound to become the standard reference for years to come.

Review: Turtles of the WorldUser Review - Maryann - Goodreads
Very informative, nice photographs. The only problem I had with this book was that the scientific name was given top billing. While the common name was printed in small lettering in the corner of the page. I am still new at this so it was a bit of an annoyance. Read full review
