Snakes of Australia
Reed Concise Guide
For each of the 170 main species accounts there is at least one photograph for identification and a brief written account listing key ID features, range and habitat, food and behaviour.
The book covers all of the most common and widespread species likely to be encountered in Australia – from pythons and tree snakes to taipans and sea snakes – along with some of the more unusual and scarce species to look out for such as Pygmy Copperhead, Small-headed Blind Snake and Square-nosed Snake.
The easy-to-use layouts and small size make it ideal for taking on days out or walks in the bush. It is ideal for beginners or wildlife-watchers of an intermediate level, and also for children as a first book on snakes.
