Reviews

Hunters in the Trees: A Natural History of Arboreal Snakes is a readable up-to-the-minute compendium of what we know about tree snakes written in a clear, nontechnical style for an adult audience of nature lovers and reptile afficionados. The book is worldwide in scope, discussing the diversity of arboreal snakes and their biology.

"How does one hide when the enemy may lurk above, beside or below?  What sorts of display tactics might serve best for defense and how do they differ from those used by ground dwelling snakes?  How does life in the trees affect vision?  What kinds of temperature and moisture conditions must an arboreal snake contend with?  How do acrobatics affect blood pressure?  How does one find a mate in the canopy?  What happens if a snake falls?  With questions like these, Sajdak takes us into a realm as broad as all of herpetology."

"This extensively researched, meticulously detailed compendium concerning the behaviors these snakes have learned to survive, and how various types of tree snakes differ from one another.  Chapter notes, a bibliography, and an index of common and scientific names, and small color photographs interspersed into almost every two-page spread round out this superb addition to any herpetology library."--Midwest Book Review, November 2010
