The Book of Snakes

For millennia, humans have regarded snakes with an exceptional combination of fascination and revulsion. Some people recoil in fear at the very suggestion of these creatures, while others happily keep them as pets. Snakes can convey both beauty and menace in a single tongue flick and so these creatures have held a special place in our cultures. Yet, for as many meanings that we attribute to snakes—from fertility and birth to sin and death—the real-life species represent an even wider array of wonders. The Book of Snakes presents 600 species of snakes from around the world, covering nearly one in six of all snake species. It will bring greater understanding of a group of reptiles that have existed for more than 160 million years, and that now inhabit every continent except Antarctica, as well as two of the great oceans. This volume pairs spectacular photos with easy-to-digest text. It is the first book on these creatures that combines a broad, worldwide sample with full-color, life-size accounts. Entries include close-ups of the snake’s head and a section of the snake at actual size. The detailed images allow readers to examine the intricate scale patterns and rainbow of colors as well as special features like a cobra’s hood or a rattlesnake’s rattle. The text is written for laypeople and includes a glossary of frequently used terms. Herpetologists and herpetoculturists alike will delight in this collection, and even those with a more cautious stance on snakes will find themselves drawn in by the wild diversity of the suborder Serpentes.

Pythons, boas, vipers, and a world more. In beautifully colorful fashion, find out about the fascinating universe of snakes. A vividly illustrated introduction to these reptiles goes up close and personal, and covers everything from origins and evolution to physical characteristics and habitat, from methods of reproduction to styles of hunting. Poisons, the meaning of their colors, and even snakes' representation in myth and legend, is here. The detailed discussions cover how and what snakes eat, which species are endangered, and defensive behaviors--including shows and bluffs to impress their enemies, the postures of poisonous snakes (and their harmless imitators), and even the game of playing dead to throw predators off. The showcase is a dictionary of species, broken up by family and subfamily; thrilling photos bring you right up to each snake's face and textured skin, drawings add additional detail, and maps show distribution patterns throughout the world.
