Sssssssssss..... To me, snakes rank in the top 10 as being the creepiest critters on the face of this planet. Some are harmless. Some are definitely not. This informative book gives the curious reader an insider's look at many different species of snakes from around the world.

Snakes are not scary; shame on you for perpetuating this untruth. Snakes are warm, beautiful creatures who have special adaptations for their environment. Not all snakes are harmful to humans; however, they all should be treated with respect. Lovely book!
