From award-winning illustrator and designer Jake Williams comes a beautiful and fascinating book filled with awe-inspiring information on reptiles – the most remarkable creatures on Earth.

Reptiles are some of the most well-adapted, specialised and resilient creatures on Earth. They have adapted to live in the most extreme environments, and they have many interesting tricks for catching prey and avoiding predators.

All sort of strange and wonderful facts are inside, such as why crocodiles swallow stones, why a group of turtle eggs will hatch at the same time, and which is friend or which is foe of the similarly-looking coral and milk snakes.

You’ll learn about reptiles in soaking rainforests, blistering deserts, and more – and you can find out how you can help preserve these amazing habitats from the greatest danger to reptiles ever – climate change.



Jake Williams is a Plymouth-based illustrator, designer and occasional animator. He creates shape-based vector illustration with bold and vibrant colours. Jake was awarded BDC’s New Designer of The Year 2017.
