About this book

This easy-to-use guide is the most comprehensive resource for snake admirers in the United States. Full-colour photographs for almost every snake in the country make for easy reference, and dividing the snakes based on their regional habitats makes finding the right snake a breeze. Whether you are trying to identify a western coral snake or its mimic, the sonoran shovel nosed snake, Scott Shupe's guide is the extensive handbook for which all snake aficionados have been waiting. With full-colour maps and a thorough glossary of terms, you'll be able to identify Arizona black rattlesnakes, eastern cottonmouths, and more in no time.

- Detailed information on the natural history of each species and subspecies
- Full-colour photographs for definitive identification
- Accurate region-by-region range maps for each snake

Unlike other snake books, Shupe's guide covers the snake population of the entire United States. His expertise and knowledge of snakes is apparent in the thoughtful descriptions and handy hints on how to tell poisonous snakes from their harmless imitators. He also includes an informative natural history of the reptiles and the scientific terms by which they are referred. As a gift for a young naturalist, a reference book for your library, or a handy tool in a sticky situation, U.S. Guide to Venomous Snakes and their Mimics is practical, useful, and fun.
