"Herping," the practice of finding and identifying species of snakes and other reptiles, is becoming as popular as bird watching among many people interested in natural history. Unlike birders, however, "herpers" have never had a formal journal in which to record their lifelist of observations. Now they do! Snake Lovers' Lifelist and Journal lists and describes every known species, subspecies, color phase, intergrade, and hybrid of snake found in the United States and Canada, for a total of 438 different native and introduced forms. Blank pages allow herpers to record the full details of their sightings of each form, while professional quality color photographs and line drawings are included to aid field identification. Chris Scott also makes an eloquent plea for the conservation of snakes and their habitats, noting which snakes are protected by law, in what areas, and what their protected status is. He hopes that this information will help to counter the growing commercialization of herpetology, a practice that often leads to the destruction of both habitats and the animals they support. Suitable for both amateur and professional herpetologists, Snake Lovers' Lifelist and Journal will be an indispensable resource for everyone fascinated by snakes. It will dispel the myths and fears surrounding these creatures and replace them with knowledge, understanding, and respect.
