Venomous Snakes of Europe, Northern, Central and Western Asia (Terralog 16) is a presentation of the venomous snakes of Europe, and Western, Central and Northern Asia. All of the approximately 80 species and forms of the families Lamprophiidae, Elapidae and Viperidae are featured, most of them with several colour variations. Some of these species are shown in a book for the first time, along with the most current taxonomy and systematics.
Every photograph is accompanied by a symbol-based overview of the individual species' terrarium requirements.
Information on natural habitats and dietary preferences will contribute to their successful keeping and breeding in captivity. Over 580 colour photographs makes TERRALOG an illustrated reference for scientists as well as terrarium keepers. No other book provides distribution maps for all species of the respective region.
At the same time, it is a unique synopsis of the diversity of colours and morphs of the venomous snakes that will excite and electrify everybody with an interest in the beautiful snakes.
