Cool! Apart from the white stuff around the drawings the French cover looks nice.

Well, I wouldn't say I LOVE any of the two but yes never mind...Never judge a book by its cover, right ;)

Definately will look into this, next time I visit a Chimaera stand. Or maybe get one from an ANWB store, or whatever comes first. Nice!

The Dutch one is even a tiny bit more up to date ;). Not entirely, though, as there's just a new Ophiomorus species in from SW Turkey and Kastellorizo. It just never stops......... :lol:

Just in case anyone's wondering, we've included Natrix helvetica, Podarcis ionicus, Ablepharus anatolicus and maybe some more I'm forgetting now. Walser and astreptophora and Vipera graeca were already in the original English version.

Hi Jeroen

I really like the field guide and wanted to get myself a copy of the english version for coming fieldtrips. Maybe i missed it in this conversation here, is there a second edition in the make? I get mixed feedbacks from online dealers about availability.

Best,
Matthias
