I am a Police Officer in Texas. I deal with snakes in my City. This book allows me to know what I am dealing with. It can be used as a bite finder. People can use the pictures to show you what they were biten by.

If you live in Texas or if you just want to know more about the snakes of Texas, this is the best field guide that you can get. Mr. Tennant not only has selected very appropriate photographs of each species he describes, but the accompanying information is the best that I've seen in any field guide about *anything*. I probably learned more about snakes by reading this one book than I'd learned from all the others I'd read to that point. Included in addition to the descriptions of the individual snakes, their sizes, habitats, reproduction, distributions, and behaviors are detailed information regarding envenomation and treatment, along with a table of venom potency for relevant snakes. Think that the Texas coral snake is the bad boy? Prepare to be surprised!
