Reptiles and Amphibians of Australia is a complete guide to Australia’s rich and varied herpetofauna, including frogs, crocodiles, turtles, tortoises, lizards and snakes. For each of the 1194 species there is a description of its appearance, distribution and habits. Each species is accompanied by a distribution map and, in most cases, a colour photograph of the living animal. The book includes 130 simple-to-use dichotomous keys that in most cases allow a specimen in hand to be identified.

worth the investment


I picked up a second hand copy of the first edition 10 years ago... LOVING now having the latest/7th edition. Pictures are brilliant and very useful to have the up to date names! We have already used it to identify 2 lizards and a snake... My children are learning heaps. This book shouldn't just be considered for herpetologists. Its great as a reference book for anyone interested in nature.

Excellent book. One for serious herps.


My 2nd edition of Cogger's book sank in the last Brisbane flood, mainly because it was on the floor where I'd just been reading it. This 7th edition is bigger, better illustrated and an excellent resource. Absolutely worth buying.



Cheapest copy to be found


This is the most desired herp book on the market.



This is it


After sevral years of wanting this highly recommended book by Cogger I finally succumbed... wonderful pictures and text. The authoritative reference text for amphibians and reptiles.





Brilliant for using as a reference for our diverse herpetofauna.

Cover on Upside Down and back to front


The content of the book is excellent. The problem was that my book came with the cover slip on, so didn't think anyting was wrong, til I went to use it the first time, and the hard cover was on backwards and upside down, so the slip was used to cover up that it was a dodgy book. At over 100 bucks, I'd recommend not buying online as you don't know if you are going to get a NON defective product. Have reported, and was told customer service would get back to me, however, I haven't heard anything.



Australian Herpetology Bible


This long awaited and much anticipated new addition of a reference book is widely considered to be the most authoritative and comprehensive reference book in Australian herpetology. This is an excellent book for all those that are seriously interested in Australian reptiles and amphibians. It is particularly useful for accurately identifying all Australian species with the use of easy to use keys.
