Problem Snake Management: The Habu and the Brown Treesnake [Hardcover]

Gordon H. Rodda , Yoshio Sawai , Hiroshi Tanaka


Available from these sellers.



Book Description

December 1998 Comstock books
Intensive research on and management of poisonous snakes has centered on Japan, home of the Habu, and Guam, where Brown Treesnakes have killed off many native species. This book draws on that research to present comprehensive guidelines for snake management, offering a wealth of information on their biology and behavior previously unavailable in English.

The authors address a wide range of problems associated with snakes, from bites to wildlife endangerment. They cover basic biology and ecology; management techniques such as detection, capture, and habitat modification; use of predators, parasites, and toxicants; and methods of isolating snakes with electrical, chemical, or habitat barriers. All management recommendations are based on the latest ecological, behavioral, and sensory information. The importance of natural history in formulating management programs for snakes is emphasized.

A thorough work on two fascinating snakes that have become a nuisance to people and animals, and the collaborate efforts taken to control them. It explains why these snakes became a problem and why they need to be managed now. It contains creative and thoughtful research on the capture (and escape), behavior and biology of these snakes.
