Snakes of the World is based on recent research that reveals snakes as the marvelous creatures they are - more fascinating than frightening, worthy of respect instead of revulsion. The author writes in an engaging, clear, and thoroughly informative style. Broad in scope and detailed in treatment, Snakes of the World surveys the natural history of various species - their habitats, feeding practices, social and mating patterns, and physiology - and shows their lives to be more complex and interesting than previously imagined.
