Explore the extraordinary natural history of lizards in this stunning fact-packed book. Here you will find out why lizards are more numerous and successful than any other group of reptiles and trace their evolution – from dinosaurs, pterosaurs and ichthyosaurs to the rich diversity of species in existence today. On the way you will witness some amazing tactics for survival, such as how lizards’ bodies and watertight skins work so that they can live on minimal amounts of food and water. Meet the ‘Jesus lizard’ that walks on water, the glider that sails through the air from tree to tree, and the horned lizard of Texas that shoots blood from its eyes. See how some species regrow their tails after losing them to predators, while others change appearance to blend in with their surroundings. Mark O’Shea, a renowned reptile expert and adventurer, takes you on location with him around the world and will even give you tips on how to go lizard-watching yourself. With over 190 exciting images this amazing natural history book will delight and inform budding naturists from 8 to 12-years old.
