Alcuni critici denominano l'enciclopedia sulla vita degli animali del Grzimek la migliore opera di riferimento con taglio enciclopedico mai pubblicata.
L'enciclopedia si compone di 16 volumi più l'indice e prende spunto dall'edizione tedesca degli anni 60, concepita in tredici volumi.
Il volume 7, rettili, è forse il migliore di questi eccellenti volumi. La conoscenza approfondita e l'amore dei curatori di questo volume sono evidenti. L'Ordine: I "crocodilians " è particolarmente suggestivo e splendidamente scritto.
Historia Naturae propone un'enciclopedia che è un'ineguagliabile risorsa per studenti e ricercatori.
