Originally published a decade ago (1988) as a comprehensive guide to the region's 397 reptile species, in the last 10 years more than 83 new reptile species have been discovered. The revised edition contains more than just the accounts of these new discoveries: the text has been completely reworked and includes taxonomic changes and updates, and new information on biology, breeding, subspecies and habitats; all the distribution maps have been updated to include the latest range extensions; 16 new color plates have been added to the existing 96; explanatory notes and a comprehensive glossary are included; and the index to common names is presented in the form of a checklist so users can compile a life list.
