Lizards Volume 1, and 2 Manfred Rogner

LG 9, LG26  

Lizards, volumes 1 and 2, is the first comprehensive work describing all known families of lizards in such depth and breadth. Rogner outlines the geographic distribution along with the natural habits and lifestyles for each species. The author also draws heavily from the firsthand experiences of herpetological enthusiasts in detailing husbandry practices for feeding; administering vitamin and mineral supplements; breeding; and setting up, heating, lighting and maintaining vivaria. Detailed descriptions and copious color photos illustrate physical characteristics of the lizards.

Volume 1 describes geckoes, flap-footed lizards, agamas, chameleons, iguanas, basilisks, and anoles. Volume 2 examines crocodile lizards, gila monsters, legless lizards, plated lizards, sungazers, skinks, night lizards, tuataras, and crocodilians.
