Illustrated descriptions of the 123 native, introduced and vagrant reptile species in the state. 'Reptiles of Victoria' is the first regional guide to all reptiles known to occur in Victoria. It contains keys and illustrated descriptions to allow identification of the 123 native, introduced and vagrant reptile species and describes their biology, ecology, distributions and the habitats in which they live. It also indicates the level of risk that venomous snakes pose to humans and includes a brief section on first aid for snake bites. Natural history enthusiasts and professional and amateur herpetologists will find this an essential guide. This book is also a fitting tribute to the late John Coventry, curator of reptiles at the Museum of Victoria.
