About this book

Poison: Sinister Species with Deadly Consequences is the ultimate guide to surviving in the natural world. Poison: Sinister Species with Deadly Consequences offers a unique look at how and where poisons and venoms naturally occur in reptiles, insects, and other creatures. From the plains of the Outback to the jungles of Madagascar, Dr. Mark Siddall arms you with the in-depth and valuable knowledge he has gleaned from his scientific jaunts around the world. In addition to his witty and lyrical take on these deadly creatures and curious occurrences, Siddall also discusses the various purposes poison has served throughout history. Seventy-five clever entries are organised in the following categories for the curious and concerned: things that sting, bite, one shouldn't touch, and one shouldn't eat. Each entry also features black-and-white illustrations hand-drawn by Megan Gavin.
