A Tribute to the Reptiles and Amphibians of Australia and New Zealand showcases 125 of the best photographs ever assembled of the countries’ most spectacular reptiles and frogs, from the Tuatara to the Cape York Graceful Tree Frog, and from the Amethystine Python to the Starred Gecko.Twenty-five of the best photographers specialising in herpetology each submitted five of their most awe-inspiring images, culminating in a unique and captivating publication.

The contributor accounts read like an adventurer’s diary, with tales of hardship, sacrifice, skill and plain old good luck that were needed in order to find and photograph these amazing beasts.

Structured like a glorified field guide, this beautiful book includes details of each species’ natural history and distribution. For each image, photographic technical specifications are highlighted, while the story behind the image takes you alongside the photographer for each shot. Come along and enjoy the adventure.

Publication is timed to coincide with the World Congress of Herpetology taking place in Dunedin, New Zealand, on 5-10 January 2020.
