Recommended Books

Stebbins, Robert C.A. "Field Guide to Western Reptiles and Amphibians."Houghton Mifflin Company. 1998.
This is the "must-have" reference for identification of reptiles and amphibians in western North America. Again and again, experienced herpetologists have told us, "this is the only book I've EVER needed to identify herps in California or in Baja California."
