Animal Planet's favorite herpetologist reveals his most terrifying encounters with dangerous animals and reptiles—documented with his very own photos!
Hit shows on Animal Planet, the Discovery Channel, and the National Geographic Channel established Austin Stevens as the original "Snakemaster." Now, the incredibly smart—yet incredibly insane—animal lover shares his most deadly run-ins with the fanged and the venomous. From wrestling with a reticulated python to panicking after being bitten by the infamous Gaboon viper, Stevens brings you into his world of wildlife and tells the story of how a boy from Pretoria, South Africa, became one of the most widely known herpetologists in the world.
With incredible photographs taken by Stevens himself, you'll be able to place yourself in his world—including the deserts of Africa and the jungles of Borneo. This one-of-a-kind story collection will make you laugh, cry, and shiver with fear!
"Austin Stevens's account of his adventures perfectly captures the thrill of hunting and handling snakes in the wild and will appeal to anyone who loves the outdoors and is fascinated by reptiles." —Chris Mattison, world-renowned photographer and author of Snake and Chameleons
