Great pocket guide for my son's school project. Very colorful & informative. Just enough information for a report.
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) Nope, I just couldn't like this one. It's just not possible to get all of the information that should be in a field guide into one this size. Physically, it looks nice. It has great pictures, and a little information about a few species. BUT... I'm a biologist, and well acquainted with Petersons fantastic 'real' field guides, and I'd strongly recommend those instead (links at the bottom of my review).

Here's what I found lacking in this one:

* Too few species. If you want to use this to identify something you find, good luck. This book covers 148 of the 700+ reptile and amphibian species in the US and Canada. The real field guides?

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?) One criteria of a good field guide is ease of identification. While this little pocket guide categorizes 148 of the most common reptiles and amphibians, it isn't convenient for quick ID. There's only one animal per page. It's no fun fumbling page after page looking for a match while that mysterious discovery quickly slithers away. Worse yet, it might not even be found because there are so many omissions in this book (there are over 500 amphibians/reptiles found in the US).

Pick a more comprehensive and local field guide to help identify nature quickly. For example, I live in the Midwest, and use Kaufman Field Guide to Nature of the Midwest (Kaufman Field Guides) to identify anything found outdoors. It not only covers reptiles and amphibians, but also includes birds, mammals, trees, wildflowers, insects, spiders, mushrooms, ferns, grasses and... Read more
