5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!, Dec 29 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Snake: The Essential Visual Guide to the World of Snakes (Hardcover)
This is a wonderful book, full of captivating pictures and beautifully written explanatory chapters. A serpent enthusiast myself, I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. Its excellent visuals guide you through the first few chapters which discuss several aspects of snakes themselves. The majority of the rest of the book looks at many different types of snakes..a page or two devoted to a certain individual species. I was impressed at the variety it covered, from boas to pythons to colubreds to venomous species. I applaud the author...this book will entertain beginners to professionals. This is a must for anyone who is interested in these amazing legless creatures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for everyone, Jan. 23 2000

This review is from: Snake: The Essential Visual Guide to the World of Snakes (Hardcover)
This book starts out by giving a very comprehensive section about the anatomy, hunting, evolution, habitats,and senses of the snake. Each of these topics were given two pages, of which were filled with interesting information. I keep snakes, but I still found myself learning things. After this, the book goes into a section that tells about many interesting species of snakes in a great format including color pictures. While the book doesn't feature as many species as I would have liked to have seen, the ones it does show are well chosen(for the most part). After this section, the book goes into a huge directory of genuses and species of almost all the snakes in the world(including some rare subspecies). This section of the book is invaluable for a herpitoligest or just someone looking up the latin name of a snake. Overall the book is great for average person and person who knows alot about snakes alike. I think the book could have been better if he had featured more species of snakes, but the book is fine as it is.

This review is from: Snake: The Essential Visual Guide to the World of Snakes (Hardcover)
My only problem with this book is its relatively few number of species shown. I would have liked the book to contain more species and perhaps a bit more information. But other than that the book is really great. The photos are all amazing and the snakes chosen to be included are good ones.
