Equal parts art, science, and empathy for wildlife, this book is not just a great contribution to the understanding and appreciation of herpetological fauna of the "magical archipelago," it is also a showcase for a new photographic technique to document reptiles at a resolution equivalent to that of a living reptile. Beautiful, informative, and fun to learn from, the Reptiles of Galápagos will be treasured by scientists, visitors, and local people of the Galápagos alike.

What a wonderful new field guide to the strange and remarkable reptiles of Galápagos. With innovative color photographs, up-to-date natural history information, and expert notes on conservation status, this indispensable guide will be as interesting and useful for travelers as it is to the scientific community. Congratulations to our friends and colleagues at Tropical Herping on this achievement. The photos are stunning.
