Review: A Field Guide to Western Reptiles and Amphibians (Peterson Field Guides #16)

Pretty much the standard guide for western herps. Pretty good overall, good illustrations and maps, a bit light on the natural history but it's meant for the field. Sturdy binding, despite thickness. Read full review
