I have a copy of the following:

A Guide to the Reptiles of Southern Africa by Johan Marais & Graham Alexander
ISBN: 9781770073869

Very good and well worth getting.
I got my copy from Exclusive Books.
Paid about R325 I think.

Hi Hilda I cannot access your link. When I click on it I get the message "you dont have the correct authority to access this page" I tried looking on the "silent Auction" threads, but couldn't see it there

I also have the snake book.
Both were among my many wildlife related book purchases this past December :redface:
