Venomous snakes have been a source of legend and nightmare since time immemorial. This book begins with a description of the anatomies of venomous snakes, along with their diversity and distribution. Also included is a unique in-depth look at the various types of snake venom and the ways that each type attacks the body. Information on the adaptations of ocean-dwelling snakes and issues of snake conservation as well as an examination of venomous lizards follow. From bamboo pit vipers to deep-diving seasnakes, and from adders and asps to terciopelos and massasaugas, this book takes an original approach to examining these enthralling creatures.
