About this book

Malawi has its fair share of snakes and more often than not they come into contact with people. Although 69% of the snakes found in Malawi are harmless, the majority of the venomous species usually cause a fatal bite due to lack of prompt medical attention. Often the snake is not identified and the doctor is left with the unenviable task of making a guess. Venomous Snakes of Malawi details the 20 species of snake considered venomous to humans and provides quick identification, bite symptoms and treatment in an easy to use guide. The hope of this book is to aid in the correct identification and the administration of the correct treatment, thus increasing the chance of survival for the victim.
