Snakes have always held an eery fascination for us. Maybe it’s the way in which they move, or how they catch their prey … Yet, they are not all dangerous, nor are they aggressive. In fact, snakes have a very useful role to play in the environment.
My First Book of Namibian Snakes introduces everyone interested in nature to Namibia’s diverse and interesting snakes – from the deadly mamba to the enormous python, or the wriggling sidewinder and the egg-eater. It is intended to help children – and interested adults, for that matter – to better understand these creatures by facilitating identification by means of a wide range of photographs and providing information on the various species in a manner that is easy to understand.
The book features 46 snake species found in Namibia with over 240 photographs and a wide variety of information on each species, and some information on snakebite is also included.
