Product Description

Review

Poisonous snakes have been part of human legends - and nightmares - since the beginning of time. O'Shea, a reptile expert and television host, brings to life the world of serpents from around the world with hundreds of stunning, often rare, photographs. --The Globe and Mail

These well-known species and their more obscure cousins are all magnificently illustrated with beautiful color photos, with short write-ups of their life histories, range, size, prey, and other natural history. This excellent book is highly recommended --Nancy Bent, Booklist

It provides a fascinating insight into this group of snakes, giving a gripping account of his first-hand experiences with this group of reptiles around the world, including several serious snakebite episodes. Coverage ranges from the adder to rattlesnakes, cobras, taipans, mambas and sea snakes. The book is well-illustrated throughout with spectacular photographs, many of them taken by Mark himself, and highlights the diversity and beauty of this group of snakes.
--Practical Reptile Keeping, November 2011

My husband has always enjoyed Mark O'Shea's work and was delighted with this book. He feels this booked is pitched just right for anyone who has an interest in snakes and the format of the book is unusual, therefore adding to the interest.

This book is an awesome read, is really informative.

The one thing I don't understand is why the scientific explanations for the species of snakes. We're not all scientists you Know? The book has really clear photo's. I think it's well worth the money, & it scared my mum & sister- in- law.

The book is a unique compilation of updated data about well-known species of snakes. Great illustrations! From Olga Pudovka Gross and Gus Gross, authors of "Management of Snakebites: Study Manual and Guide for Health Care Professionals" that shares latest science on snakebite management.
