An Authoritative Field Guide to All Australian Land Snakes.
Greame Gow, former curator of reptiles at both Taronga Zoo and the Museums and Art Galleries of the Northern Territory, has over the years collected a large variety of snakes throughout Australia and specialised in studying their habits in captivity. In this comprehensive study, he has arranged the information on each species in a concise and easy form so that quick reference to distribution, description, size and habits can be made.
The book also includes chapters up-to-date treatment of snake bite and on the care of snakes in captivity, including housing, temperature, food and the treatment of common diseases, parasites and wounds, plus a striking photographic section covering most of the snakes discussed.
