Bob L. Tipton, a research associate at the Texas Cooperative Wildlife Collection at Texas A&M and a native of Houston, Texas, grew up collecting snakes around Houston and east Texas. After graduating college he entered the business world where he began traveling and collecting snakes extensively throughout the world. He has studied and collected snakes in 59 countries where his work in petroleum and capital flight issues took him. His relationship with the TCWC at Texas A&M University began about ten years ago when he started using their facilities and resources to identify snakes he was finding in Latin America. That initial research eventually resulted in this book and CD-ROM.
