Beskrivelse

Snakes is a comprehensive introduction to the biology and natural history of this ecologically diverse and important group of animals. From garter snakes and vipers to boas and pythons, authors David Gower, Katie Garrett, and Simon Maddock showcase the variety and complexity of a group that includes more than four thousand living species.

Snakes inhabit almost every part of the globe. While some live only in the water, others are found primarily in the treetops of rain forests or underground in deserts. This book reveals the myriad ways snakes have adapted to such diverse habitats and the workings of their unique behavior—how they are able to move so gracefully even without limbs, swallow meals several times the size of their heads, and survive without eating for months. Along the way, readers will also learn about the latest research on new species, taxonomic changes, and conservation status. With stunning color illustrations throughout, Snakes is an indispensable guide to these fascinating and awe-inspiring creatures.
