About this book

Dangerous Creatures of Africa documents the range of dangerous and threatening aspects of nature-animals that can wound, venomous creatures, those that are poisonous to eat and diseases caused by animals.

The focus, as the subtitle suggests, is on understanding, identifying, avoiding and surviving these potential hazards of the African wilds. Symptoms are detailed and first aid measures supplied. A lively design with a strong element of drama through photographs, information boxes and case studies make even this very practical information riveting reading.
