Summer Reading: Reptiles and Amphibians

Book Title: Reptiles and Amphibians

Authors: Herbert S. Zim and Hobart M. Smith

Summary: This book introduces you to 212 species of reptiles and amphibians, what habitats they live in, and other amazing facts about what these unusual, but interesting animals do.

I like how the authors gave many charts and other explanations about each kind of topic, and the full color pictures. The information is very useful.

I would recommend this to people who want to know more about the many different types of these fascinating creatures.
