The present first part is an illustration of the subfamily Draconinae, which will be completed in Part 2 that will also then cover the subfamily Leiolepidinae. The present treatise contains color photographs of several species that have never before been pictured in color and most are depicted in a manner to outline their sexual dichromatism. Photographs of juveniles, various natural habitats, as well as some as of yet undescribed species complement the photographic collection. A symbol-based summary of the individual biological requirement is meant to provide a guideline for the husbandry and propagation of the individual species. Its wealth of over 530 color photos makes TERRALOG the photographic reference for both scientists and herpetoculturists. At the same time, it is a unique synopsis that enables every lover of nature to marvel at the colorful splendor and variability of Southern Asian Agamids in a manner second to none. This book is the ultimate identification and field guide for all existing Agamid Lizards of Southern Asia.
