There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The marine snails are very limited and I see at least one error right off; the 'Triton' is not a triton, but rather a shell known as the Ostrich foot (related to a conch) '. The author clearly is not emphasizing marine organisms and there is no attempt to include fish (save the Mottled Triplefin)and that's the only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars Still that would add a lot more weight to this book which is a nice sized field guide and I suspect not all that many travelers worry about fish, mollusks, and the like.
Oh, heck, I'm being too picky. Fitter's earned five stars.

Glad that I waited until I got home before purchasing it!
