They are slithery. Some are dangerous. But they are all fascinating. Snakes combines excellent vivid colour photography and interesting, entertaining text that details the lives of a variety of snakes in an enlightening, and often amusing, book. In non-technical language, David Badger presents fascinating snake lore from across the centuries and describes everything from the physical traits and reproductive habits of snakes to territorial behaviour and life span. Samplings of general 'snake facts' are highlighted throughout, along with literary quotes on snakes from noted authors such as Mark Twain, Emily Dickinson, and Annie Dillard. Featuring 100 full-colour photographs -- of everything from garter snakes, rattlesnakes, and vipers to cobras, pythons and anacondas -- by renowned nature photographer John Netherton. The book also includes an intriguing appendix that explains how he managed to capture specific photographs. For reptile and nature fans and pet snake owners.
