Dangerous Snakes of Australia: An Illustrated Guide to Australia’s Most Venomous Snakes
This book covers 30 species of snake, each one being fully described in the first section which covers their colour, scalation, habitat, habits and venoms. Head scale diagrams and distribution maps aid prompt identification. The 48-page colour section features colour photographs of each snake, together with such aspects as reproduction, skin shedding, management of snake-bites, and even conservation. Full coverage of first aid and hospital treatment for snake bite is given in the second half of the book. There are detailed instructions for the use and administration of antivenoms. The book is reference material for the medical profession, especially in country areas and also for herpetologists, naturalists, bushwalkers, first aiders, conservationists and anyone interested in Australia’s wildlife.
