Benin is famous for its harmless sacred pythons that are worshipped in some cities and can even be seen and touched by tourists in the historic city of Ouidah on the Atlantic coast. Benin is however also home to some of the most poisonous and deadliest snakes in the world. There is not a lot of knowledge on them and many peasants and farmers fall victims to their bites every year. Since I couldn't find any book on this topic, I decided to do the research and to write one. I will subsequently work on a translation in French and Fongbe which are the most spoken languages in the Republic of Benin. I'm not a zoologist by trade but the book relies on research and observations by the best scientists in the field. Those scientists were commissioned by the US Army who felt the need to possess that information to protect its troops globally. This book is solely informative and should not be relied upon or used for anything other than intellectual curiosity.
