Overview

Raucous Reptiles presents extreme and extraordinary species from the world of snakes, lizards, tortoises, turtles and crocodilians. All the featured creatures represent the biggest, weirdest, sneakiest and deadliest reptiles in the world; showcased through dramatic photography and their own comic-strip style stories. More than a sprinkling of humor accompanies these awesome reptilian tales. The text is accessible, fun and full of page-turning facts designed to make reading-time a much looked forward to event. Who wouldn't want to read about:

. A snake weighing in at 550lb.

. The Black Mama's "kiss of death"

. A Stinkpot Turtle who stinks to fend off attack.

. The Australian Thorny Devil who has two heads.

In addition to the comic-strip stories, are stunning full-page photographs and extra bite-size facts, which allow you to get up close and personal with these extreme beasts without having to come across them in real life (PHEW!) It certainly makes for a brilliant, highly sensational read!
