Overview

Herpetologist Trutnau provides practical information he hopes will address both prejudice against venomous snakes, and carelessness by people who keep them. He speaks to specialists in zoological gardens and herpetologists in scientific institutes and collections, but increasingly to amateur terrarium keepers who are devoted to venomous snakes. He discusses general characteristics of venomous snakes, caging and special adaptations, and a number of popular species. Color photographs are present throughout. Donald W. Stremme translates the 1998 fourth edition of the German Giftschlangen; the English does not include the sections on first aid and legal aspects. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
