Tortoises, Terrapins and Turtles of Africa by Bill Branch

Book Description

Sub-Saharan Africa has 18 tortoises, 5 softshelled terrapins, 18 side-necked terrapins and 6 turtles - a total of 47 species (Chelonians). This book, in the mould of Chameleons, will discuss this ancient group of reptiles - what they are, body plan (anatomy), where they occur (habitats), and behaviour. All species will then be examined according to description, distribution and habitat, biology with accompanying photographs of the species and its typical habitat. A final section will deal with folklore and uses, relationship with mankind; threats; and survival in captivity.
