This book covers all the groups of Australian snakes.
Where identification features are of particular interest they are provided, and key pointers offer hints to general diagnostic aspects.
People are generally most interested in whether a snake is harmful, or what unusual habits it has, so within each family the genera are grouped together on the basis of how we relate to them, their ecology or other behavioral traits.
From Secretive, burrowing blind snakes to the swift, keen-eyed whipsnakes and the lethal taipans, scientific and common names are used and identification features and key species pointers are included.
About the Authors

Comments about What Snake is That?:
The delivery of products has been excellent, as requested time is used,it's a lovely morning start.
My granddaughters and I looked at every page, read bits of info and have it nearby to squiz through.
The Northern Territory has a number of snakes so this book will be helpful for identification.
Just looking at for pleasure and wonder at the variety of colours, etc.
I love the feel of the paper.
