Amphibians and Reptiles of Montana
by J. Kirwin Werner, Bryce A. Maxell, Paul Hendricks, & Dennis L. Flath

      Amphibians and Reptiles of Montana is a comprehensive field guide to the state's thirty-one species of frogs, toads, salamanders, turtles, lizards, and snakes. Find out where and when to look for these often reclusive critters; what sounds they make; which species really mean it when they bite; how they hunt, breed, elude predators, and overwinter. Learn how to safely handle them, when they shouldn't be disturbed, why populations are dwindling in some places, and what you can do about it.

      Discover how the Western Skink leaves its blue tail behind for predators; the tiny Pacific Treefrog maunfactures natural antifreeze inside its body in winter; the Greater Short-horned Lizard might squirt you with blood from its eyes; and Painted Turtle babies become male or female depending on the temperature. With descriptions, color photographs, and eight identification keys (including egg an larval stages), this comprehensive field guide allows both the layperson and the professional to confidently identify Montana's frogs, toads, salamanders, turtles, lizards, and snakes. Includes 213 color photographs, 78 line drawings, 41 maps, 4 tables, 3 appendixes, bibliography, glossary, species checklist, and index. Mountain Press Publishing Company. ISBN: 978-0-87842-500-6. 262 Pages. 2004.
