I went to Barbados in 1988. Until now (03/2000) I Had NO IDEA what I had Found there..!..an excellent text with the info anyone from an amateur naturalist to an experienced herpatoculturalist can take head of. I had no idea that snakes occured on the island of Barbados until I read this book. Now I look foreward to my return everyday. Yours truly,Lee Fairclough.
