About this book

Comprehensive and well-illustrated reference, with chapters on:
Origins, Biogeography and Classification
The Vipers' Environment
Habits and Behaviour
Working with Vipers
Species Accounts

The book reflects the author's decades of experience of vipers in much of the Old World, as well as in captivity. The species accounts illustrate the diversity of Old World Vipers, while providing important information on distribution, taxonomy, behaviour and ecology. David Warrell's chapter on viperid envenoming is a reminder of how snake-human encounters can often end in tragedy.
