About

A new addition to our exciting series of concise field guides, it is the ultimate keep-in-your-pocket guide to Australian snakes. It may be diminutive in size but it punches well above its weight in terms of usefulness, being packed with more than 180 images of all the species most likely to be encountered in Australia.

For each of the 170 main species accounts there is at least one photograph for identification and a brief written account listing key ID features, range and habitat, food and behaviour. The book covers all of the most common and widespread species likely to be encountered in Australia; from pythons and tree snakes to taipans and sea snakes; along with some of the more unusual and scarce species to look out for such as Pygmy Copperhead, Small-headed Blind Snake and Square-nosed Snake. The easy-to-use layouts and small size make it ideal for taking on days out or walks in the bush. It is ideal for beginners or wildlife-watchers of an intermediate level, and also for children as a first book on snakes.
