About this book

Graeme Gow, former curator of reptiles at both Taronga Zoo and the Museums and Art Galleries of the Northern Territory, has over the years collected a large variety of snakes throughout Australia and specialised in studying their habits in captivity. In this comprehensive study, he has arranged the information on each species in a concise and easy form so that quick reference to distribution, description, size and habits can be made.

Snakes of Australia also includes chapters on up-to-date treatment of snake bite and on the care of snakes in captivity, including housing, temperature, food and the treatment of common diseases, parasites and wounds, plus a a striking photographic section covering most ot the snakes discussed.
