About this product
- DescriptionTexas has about one hundred twenty native species and subspecies of snakes, fifteen of which are vemous. Since 1950, Texans have turned to the <cite>Poisous Snakes of Texas pamphlet series published by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department for help in identifying these snakes and for expert advice on preventing and treating snakebite. <cite>Vemous Snakes of Texas, a thoroughly revised and updated edition of <cite>Poisous Snakes, carries on this tradition as a one-stop, all-you-need-to-kw guide to Texas's rattlesnakes, copperheads, cottonmouths, and coral snakes. In this authoritative field guide, you'll find: * Full-color photographs and a county-by-county distribution map for each species.* Each species' common and scientific name, description, look-alikes, and a summary sketch of its habitat, behavior, reproduction, vem characteristics, predator-prey relationships, and fossil record.* Up-to-date advice on recognizing vemous snakes and preventing and treating snakebite, both at home and in the field.* A glossary of terms and an extensive bibliography. A special feature of this guide is an expanded treatment of the ecological and evolutionary context in which vemous snakes live, which supports Price's goal to lessen the hatred and fear and to increase the understanding, the respect, and even the appreciation with which vemous snakes should be regarded.
