Occupying every continent except Antarctica, turtles take a variety of forms –ranging from the small bog turtles of the U.S. to the giant land tortoises that inhabit the Galapagos Islands. These ancient reptiles have remained relatively unchanged with the passage of time. For many years the authors of this book have traveled the world to study turtles in their natural habitats. This book covers all the essentials of the more then 250 turtle species world wide. What they eat, where they live, how they behave, and when and where they lay there eggs is all revealed in this book. Turtles of the World is a valuable addition to any library, public or private.
