Venomous animals are everywhere. There could even be one crawling toward you right now. (Indeed, the editor received some fire ant bites at his desk while working on this book) But despite our fears of potential danger from these animals, they still fascinate and delight us too. Venomous Animals is intended for anyone interested in, and wanting to safely view, some of our most awe-inspiring animals in nature. It should prove useful to hikers, bird-watchers, and homeowners as well as professionals in poison control centres and the medical field.
