"Dr. Harold Heatwole is the world expert on sea snakes and this exceptional book is a testimony to the breadth and depth of his knowledge. This attractive edition is easily the single most informative source on the
biology of sea snakes…" -- Harold K. Voris, Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago.
"Naturalists, divers, students and professional herpetologists alike will welcome this new edition of Harold Heatwole's Sea Snakes. It provides new insights into the lives and habits of a small but fascinating coterie of snakes - most of them highly venomous - and the variety of adaptations they have evolved for surviving and thriving in the sea." -- Hal Cogger, Australian Museum,
"Sea Snakes is a true find that is momentous to marine ecology and reptile conservation." -- Jake Burroughs, Notes From Noah, Vol. XXXVII, No. 4
"I highly recommend this volume to both students and teachers of herpetology as well as serious lay readers. Its comprehensive coverage even suggests that a course devoted to the biology of aquatic snakes may soon be an attractive offering." -- Harold K. Voris, Herpetological Review, December 1999
"The photographic quality is excellent…This is undoubtedly an interesting book for anyone interested in herpetology in general and specifically snakes." -- Alan H. Wilkie, The Herptile, March 2000.
"Sea Snakes is a high class book with fine illustrations…I can only give positive statements and a warm recommendation" -- Thomas Cedhagen, Fil. Dr., Snoken, Vol.30, No.1, 2000
It is hoped that the availability of Hal Heatwole's excellent book will encourage more
sea snake work. No Herp library is complete without it." -- Rom Whitaker, HAMADRYAD, Vol. 25 No. 2, December 2000
