Product Description

Review

"Combines solid scientific reference material, which is not too technical for the layman to understand, with popular natural history, folklore about rattlesnakes and about their bites, and rattlesnake stories from credible and incredible sources. A wonderfully interesting book."--"Tucson Star

About the Author

Laurence M. Klauber was an electrical engineer who began seriously studying reptiles in his forties. He volunteered to become the San Diego Zoo's first Curator of Reptiles, and his fascination with snakes and lizards eventually brought him international scientific recognition. He died in 1968 at the age of eighty-four.

I read this book in the mid 90's just for the heck of it, and found it to be wonderful. The style is neither dryly academic nor breathlessly tabloid, but just right. The text answers almost all possible questions about rattlesnake life, legends, myths, and taxonomy that one could think of. It is one of the few books I have read that could be used as either a reference or vacation book.

This is the highly regarded study of rattlesnakes by the man who has more species named after him than anyone. This book originally came in a two volume text, but that is now, sadly, out of print. This book is a must for the serious herpetologist!

This is by far the best book on the subject of rattlesnakes ever written. I am so glad they made a second edition. Everything you ever wanted to know about rattlesnakes is in this book.
