Comprehensive reference for both amateurs and professionals "A timely and elegant volume that succeeds not only as a field guide but as a natural history narrative and a visual reminder of the beauty and diversity of Florida's amphibians."--Gregory C. Lepera, former curator of herpetology, Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens "Any person who is going into the field to study, observe, or simply enjoy will be interested in this book."--Kathleen S. Russell, general curator, Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo "The Bartletts have once again produced a wonderfully useful guide that blends excellent photographs with their extensive field experience. The excerpts from their personal field notes generate amphibious short stories guaranteed to draw you out into the woods and wetlands to stalk these creatures for yourself. Who says birdwatchers get to have all the fun?"--Daniel Pearson, Florida Department of Environmental Protection Florida amphibians can be found from the wildest swamps of the Everglades to the backyards of urban Pensacola. Throughout the state, the night is filled with the ubiquitous songs of tree frogs. Whether you are a professional or backyard naturalist, Florida's Frogs, Toads, and Other Amphibians is a must-have book to better understand these fascinating creatures. With a voice that is both relaxed and reliable, R.D. and Patricia Bartlett provide detailed species descriptions, range maps, and striking color photographs for each of the sixty-three native and five non-native species of amphibians found within the state. They also provide general information such as the difference between toads and frogs and between salamanders and newts, how to tell one species from another, what they eat, how they reproduce, ongoing controversies regarding scientific nomenclature and taxonomy, and where each animal can most commonly be found.

Features both native and non-native species now living in Florida "A welcome addition to the library of the amateur and professional herpetologist alike, covering such diverse topics as molecular biology all the way to charming personal anecdotes."--Charles Scott Pfaff, herpetology curator, Riverbanks Zoo and Garden "With a growing species list wrought by thriving alien taxa, and the changing abundance of many other forms, much of what is already written about Florida's herpetofauna has become outdated and incomplete. A need for a new reference, to treat a new fauna, has emerged. The Bartletts have answered this need with a fine new book."--Steve Reichling, author of Reptiles and Amphibians of the Southern Pine Woods From alligators in backyard swimming pools to tiny lizards on window screens, you don't have to go far in Florida to find reptiles. Both fascinating and feared, there are more than one hundred species and subspecies of turtles, lizards, and crocodilians in the state--nearly half of which are non-native. Florida's Turtles, Lizards, and Crocodilians is the most comprehensive field guide available to identify and understand these creatures. Complete with range maps, vibrant color photographs, and detailed descriptions, the book is filled with information. Tips on herping (similar to birding) include where and when to look for different kinds of lizards, turtles, and crocodilians in the wild, how to identify them, which ones you can and cannot capture, how to properly care for unregulated species at home, and how best to photograph them. 200-pound snapping turtles to tiny, legless worm lizards, from animals that live in the open ocean to ones that prefer dry sands, from caimans to terrapins to basilisks (though not the Harry Potter variety), everything you could want to know about Florida's non-snake reptiles can be found in this book.
