    One thought on “Their Blood Runs Cold: Adventures with Reptiles and Amphibians”

    1. Of uneven quality. When Gibbons is telling crazy stories, he's hilarious and an all-around blast. When he's starts lecturing or preaching, he's something of a mildly benevolent bore. Still fun, and a good read-aloud if skimming isn't against your religion.

    2. Colorful and amusing accounts of field herpetology. Not a dull read by any means. I would recommend it to anyone, whether or not they think they have any interest in herpetology or biology.

    3. Some interesting anecdotes, but also there is a lot of old out of date "just collect everything you find". Conservation has advanced extensively since this book was published.

    4. Fantastic Book, I could relate to Dr. Gibbon's field experiences. I recommend it not only to biologists but people with an interest in the outdoors.
