Nic Bishop has done it again, and maybe even better than his previous books. Fascinating facts accompany incredible pictures of a variety of snakes in various poses from ready to strike to swallowing prey. It is comforting to discover that most snakes prefer to hide and would rather not use their venom. Mr. Bishop adds his personal story of writing the book, including that he was bitten only once while photographing the snakes in the book. Includes bibliography, index and glossary.
