Dangerous Snakes of Africa covers all dangerous snake species in Africa--a total of 136 species, along with 70 species that are easily confused with them. Each species account looks in detail at identification, habitat and distribution, behavior and venom, and how to treat bites, accompanied by a map and a selection of photographs. Introductory sections cover the major snake groups, their distribution and venom characteristics, how to avoid snake bites and first aid advice.
