The Book of Monitor Lizards
320 pages, 317 color photos, color illustrations, 83 color distribution maps.
Within the last decade, our knowledge concerning monitor lizards increased tremendously, not only by the number of newly described species but also by our knowledge about their biology and how to breed them. For example, Varanus komodoensis has its own intra-species communication by determined movements of its tail, and even communal egg-laying is shown by two monitor species and the Varanus gouldii burrows are astonishing examples of lizard-architecture that are almost unbelievable. This book brings together a vast amount of information and can safely be considered today's bible of monitor lizards.
