Whilst this title is a compilation of a proportion of the information in the four individual titles on Dragons, Skinks, Monitors, and Geckos and Pygopods it includes an additional four chapters, more extensive information on natural history, taxonomy and husbandry techniques and over 3000 images, almost twice the unique images of all the individual books combined.

The final section in the Husbandry chapters is a comprehensive 40 page guide to common Diseases and Disorders of Australian Lizards such as Nutritional, Parasitic, Skin, Nail, Eye, Respiratory, Traumatic, Reproductive and Oral disorders. This is completed with a guide to Administration of Medications and Making the most of your Reptile Veterinarian. Within each of the 39 Genus/Species chapters, information is presented on Pronunciation, Descriptions, Sexing, Subspecies, Distribution, Habitat, Captive status, Indoor and Outdoor Housing, Compatibility, Feeding, Breeding methods, Incubation, Colour variants and Hybrids. Much of this information is published here for the first time.
