Venomous Snakes of Africa is the 15th volume of the highly esteemed Terralog series. It portrays about 136 taxa and forms of the families Atractaspidae, Elapidae and Viperidae, and covers the entire African continent. Besides species that are illustrated in colour photographs for the first time, this book also contains photographs of some undescribed forms.
This second volume of the Terralog series on venomous snakes of the world is dedicated to the venomous snakes of Africa as defined by political frontiers. The publishers have therefore omitted the species native to the Egyptian Sinai peninsula that are of Arabian or Oriental origins and will be covered in another volume of Terralog. Exceptions are Echis coloratus and Walterinnesia aegyptia, which also occur in the Egyptian mainland.

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.

With over 480 colour photographs and 78 colour maps, this book is a very well illustrated reference guide for scientists as well as terrarium keepers.
At the same time it is a unique synopsis of the diversity of African venomous snakes that will excite and electrify everybody with an interest in those beautiful and fascinating snakes!

Maik Dobiey and Gernot Vogel. 148 pages. 2007. Hardcover. ISBN - 9783899733655
