The Best Book of Snakes (Best Book Of...)by Christiane Gunzi
Synopses & Reviews
Every aspect of snakes is covered, from camouflage and cold-bloodedness to how they move and kill their prey. Children who are fascinated by snakes will also discover how they feed and raise their young, how to study snakes, and why some snakes are endangered. Specially commissioned art shows a variety of these animals--flying snakes, sea snakes, and also more infamous snakes such as the black mamba and king cobra--in their habitats.
Realistic illustrations capture each individual species, while evocative text and dramatic artwork recreate the life, habitats, and behavior of these fascinating reptiles—from harmless grass snakes to the deadly taipan of Australia. This handy paperback is just the thing for young herpetologists on the go.
