About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

Out of 137 snake species found in Costa Rica, nearly one quarter are considered to be poisonous. These poisonous species are found throughout the country, and therefore it is important to recognize them so as to prevent any snake bite accidents.

This laminated bilingual sheet is an illustrated guide for recognizing poisonous snakes belonging to viper groups (Pitviper, Rattlesnake, Tamaga, Eyelash Palm pitviper, Fer de lance, Bushmaster, and other similar ones) and elapid groups (poisonous coral snakes and the sea snake). This sheet includes a full-colour illustration of each species and their distribution throughout the country, in addition to some basic advice in case you run into one of these snakes or if you are bitten.
