Geckos of Madagascar, the Seychelles, Comoros and Mascarene Islands

Geckos Madagaskars, der Seychellen, Komoren und Maskarenen

(Terralog)
Edition Chimaira (2008).
Hardcover Book

Text from the Back Cover (English)

This volume of TERRALOG is a presentation of the geckos inhabiting the islands of Madagascar, the Seychelles, Comoros and Mascarene. Without any doubt, members of the genera Phelsuma and Uroplatus are among the most popular geckos native to the numerous islands of the Western Indian Ocean. The present treatise pictures several as of yet undescribed forms, and takes into consideration the latest taxonomic changes and systematics of the genus Phelsuma. The photographic collections for the individual species are complemented with symbol-based summaries of their individual natural habitats and dietary preferences that are meant to provide guidelines for their captive husbandry and propagation. Its wealth of over 475 color photographs makes TERRALOG the photographic reference for both scientists and herpetoculturists. At the same time, it is a unique synopsis that enables every enthusiast to marvel at the variability of the geckos of this region.
