This quick-start guide to common and notable species highlights more than 40 of the snakes, lizards, frogs, and toads you're most likely to spot on a trip to the Chihuahuan Desert, including Big Bend. Each species is identified by common and scientific name, typical adult length, general description, habitat, notable behaviors, and diet. Venomous species are flagged in red, and multiple photos are provided for species with a wide range of color variants.
The waterproof guide’s 12 panels fold up into a handy narrow packet which is sized to fit in your back pocket yet sturdy enough to stand up under repeated use.
