Finally available in English, this completely revised and expanded edition contains full descriptions of 171 different species and utilizes 129 color pictures. The behavior and care in captivity of venomous snakes from the families Elapidae (cobras, kraits, and coral snakes), Viperidae (adders and vipers), and Crotalidae (pitvipers), are comprehensively discussed. Subspecies and color variations are carefully detailed. It is an essential reference for all veterinary clinics; zookeepers; and herptoculturists.

"… a critically important and basic addition to the professional reference library and supplemental reading lists of zookeepers, herptoculturists, veterinary clinics, and academic library collections."--The Bookwatch, October 2004

"Excellent!...This is most definitely a MUST HAVE for anyone with an interest in the captive husbandry of venomous snakes." -- Alan H. Wilkie, The Herptile, 29:3, September 2004"

"… useful reference for anyone working with the venomous snakes described within…The color photos are excellent." -- Jeremy Konwiser, "Animal Keepers' Forum, Vol. 32, No. 5, May 2005

"With the limited amount of written resources on the market dealing with venomous reptiles, this book comes recommended to any AZA institution with a need for this kind of information.  The money spent on this book is a prudent investment for your staff safety as well as the snakes themselves." -- Thane Johnson, Library News for Zoos and Aquariums, March 2005

"… this book is intended for the growing numbers of venomous snake fanciers.  Although they will find the book valuable, there is little doubt that professionals, whether physicians or biologists, will find useful information in the book." -- Brian I. Crother, The Quarterly Review of Biology, June 2005

"One will immediately become impressed with the excellent layout, as the author provides each species with the scientific name, along with an excellent natural history and habitat notes…Another major asset is that the author provides superb photographs of the majority of the species." -- Harlan D. Walley, Bulletin of the Maryland Herpetological Society, Vol. 41, Number 2, June 2005

"… This author covers all aspects ranging from field experience up to the captivity and care…I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in keeping venomous snakes or interested in them." -- Steve Cook, Cold Blooded News, March 2006

"… a classic in the genre of snake husbandry books.  The photographs are excellent, printing and binding of the highest standard, in general a book worth owning, especially if you are a "hot snakes" person." -- Rom Whitaker, Hamadryad, Vol. 30, No. 1 & 2, March 2006
