Snakes, the best-known members of the reptile family, are some of the most popular animals in the world today. With over 120 species in the United States alone (including 17 poisonous varieties), snakes thrive in every region of the country. From the Rainbow snakes to the Western shovelnose snake to the Sharptail snake, dozens of species are shown in beautifully draw detail. Anatomy, behavior, reproduction, and geographic distribution are included in the engaging text. Despite their reputation, this book explains how Snakes are an essential component of the web of life.
