Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Snakes, the best-known members of the reptile family, are some of the most popular animals in the world today. With over 120 species in the United States alone (including 17 poisonous varieties), Snakes thrive in every region of the country. From the Rainbow snakes to the Western shovelnose snake to the Sharptail snake, dozens of species are shown in beautifully draw detail. Anatomy, behavior, reproduction, and geographic distribution are included in the engaging text. Despite their reputation, this book explains how Snakes are an essential component of the web of life.

Golden Guides first appeared in 1949 and quickly established themselves as authorities on subjects from Natural History to Science. Relaunched in 2000, Golden Guides from St. Martin's Press feature modern, new covers as part of a multi-year, million-dollar program to revise, update, and expand the complete line of guides for a new generation of students.

This guide illustrates in full color the most common, widespread, important, or unusual representative snakes from each of the eighteen families of Lepidoptera. Information includes:

· The 120 species of snakes and where they are found, including venomous ones

· Fangs, teeth, and the different ways venom is used

· Growth, reproduction, and how they shed their skin

Easy-to-understand and concisely written, this indispensable guide includes little-known facts about one of the most extraordinary types of animal in the world today.

Using clear text and detailed illustrations, Golden Guides from St. Martin's Press present accurate information in a handy format for the beginner to the expert. These guides focus on what your students are really going to see. They are easy to use: detailed, full-color illustrations, text, and maps are all in one place. They are easy to understand: accurate, accessible information is simplified without being misrepresented. They are authoritative, containing up-to-date information written experts and checked by specialists. And they are portable: handy and lightweight, designed to fit in a pocket and be carried anywhere.

Golden Guides from St. Martin's Press have been updated and revised to revitalize the complete line of guides for a new generation of students.
