Description

Can you tell if a snake is venomous by its colour? What is the real chance of being bitten by a snake? Can you really die in 30 seconds? Many of us have an instinctive fear of snakes and other reptiles. Over the last 200 years, we have built up a strong negative image of them, especially snakes. It is an image that has been reinforced by many fallacies and misconceptions. Living with Snakes and Other Reptiles provides a layperson's account of why these creatures behave the way they do and what makes people get into trouble. The book sheds new light on snakes, lizards and crocodiles, helps you to identify them and dispels some common myths and fallacies. In revealing the fascinating world of reptiles, the book provides the reader with the knowledge to better cope with them at home and in the workplace.
