Sterrin's Reptile Journey

The Big Book of Reptiles

Sterrin's Reptile Journey

In Sterrin’s Reptile Journey ecologist and herpetologist Sterrin Smalbrugge takes you to amazing places all over the world to discover the most incredible reptiles. With illustrations from Wendy Panders and full colour
reptile photos. Reptiles occur all over the world. Well, amost. The only place where they cannot be found is Antarctica, because it is too cold there. But in the other places reptiles have found awesome ways to adapt.
Because the climate and nature is different at every continent, reptiles have evolved in different ways.

In this book Sterrin takes you on an exciting reptile journey: discover everything about the different continents and the impact of the landscape, climate, and humans on reptiles, recently discovered species and almost gone extinct species, and many cool facts! Did you know that the Texas horned lizard scares his
enemies with a blood bomb? This little lizard shoots blood from his eyes when he feels threatened. Make sure you get out in time!

*Unfortunately the book is currently only available in Dutch. 

The Big Book of Reptiles

An irresistible book for daredevils

Full of facts, awesome reptile photos and funny illustrations

Reptiles have been around for hundreds of millions of years, but to this very day they do not have the best reputation. Wrongfully so, believes Sterrin Smalbrugge. Reptiles are indispensable to nature. Moreover, they are incredibly fascinating. Did you know for example that the king cobra is the only snake in the world that makes a nest for her children? That the gecko is a true Spider-Man because of his cool legs? And that the venom of the Gila monster (a big lizard) is used in medicine to treat diabetes type 2?

Including illustrations by Wendy Panders and photos by reptile photographer Matthijs Kuijpers
The book is currently only available in Dutch. We hope to translate the book in the future.
