1989. Green cloth hardcover in very good condition., lacks dust jacket. Slightly cocked, some spots to the top edge of pages. Many books dealing with reptiles and amphibians cover the identification and natural history of the individual groups of all the species inhabiting Louisiana. But a study focusing on the state can discuss in much greater depth and detail distribution and local variation. This book includes many new observations on appearance, distribution, habitat, habits, systematics, etc., gleaned from the examination of many museum specimens and their accompanying data.
