About this book

First comprehensive guide to the 94 species of snake, both terrestrial and aquatic, which are known to occur on Papua New Guinea. Each species account provides information on identification, distribution, natural history and snakebite risk, accompanied by colour photographs (where available), line drawings, and distribution maps (in a separate appendix). Also included is a section on the management and treatment of snakebite. |Papua New Guinea has one of the highest mortality rates from snakebite of any country. This guide is intended to make identification of venomous species easier, and therefore promote the conservation, not destruction, of snakes in general.
