Reviews

This monographic treatment offers all the basic knowledge about New World venomous coral snakes. It gives full descriptions and keys for identification of all the species and subspecies, with maps of distribution and variation. Also included are morphology, anatomy, color patterns, and folklore. The biology and evolution section includes ecology, food and feeding, reproduction, enemies and defense, biogeography and evolution, with special reference to mimicry and cannibalism. The section on venoms and snakebite surveys characteristics and effects of venom and discusses snakebite accidents, first aid, and remedies.  The book contains 63 color photographs.

"… a superb masterpiece in every way...a model for all time." -- Hobart M. Smith, University of Colorado.

"The dust cover of this book is engaging and the contents enticing. The book covers all aspects of coral snakes: anatomy, ecology, feeding and food, reproduction, enemies, mimicry, biogeography, evolution, venoms, and consequences to humans of a coral snake bite. Anyone interested in herpetology will find this a useful reference book." -- Nathan M. Smith, American Reference Books Annual, 1998.
