Format: Hardcover
Collaboratively compiled and edited by James B. Murphy, Claudio Ciofi, Colomba de La Panouse, and Trooper Walsh, Komodo Dragons: Biology And Conservation is an impressive and informative collection of deftly presented essays by a variety of knowledgeable contributors about the evolution, population, distribution, habitat, ecology, of the great and unique carnivorous reptiles known as Komodo Dragons. A scattering of black-and-white photographs enhance these fascinating scientific analyses. Komodo Dragons is enthusiastically recommended reading and a seminal contribution to academic and professional Zoological Studies reference collections.

Very detailed info. about Komodo Dragons, a lot of it technical, but much of it was quite interesting reading too. Photos were good, especially since the book only deals with one species. Recommended if you really want to know a lot about Komodo Dragons.

My sixth grader loves it! We needed another book to finish out the year as he had finished his science series, he chose this one because he loves animal life but especially Komodo Dragons!
