About this deal

He has authored seven books, including A Book of Snakes: A Life-Size Guide to Six Hundred Species from around the World (2018) and Lizards of the World (2021), and is working on a slow burn revision of A Guide to the Snakes of Papua New Guinea. Unfortunately some of the entries were wrong (wrong photo/snake), and the descriptions were too short, leading to many being quite repetitive. He has participated as herpetologist on numerous tropical expeditions for the Royal Geographical Society, Oxford University, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, University of Melbourne, University of Adelaide, Operation Raleigh, Raleigh Executive, and Discovery Expeditions. PT Global Alam Nusantara (GAN) is one of ecosystem restoration concessions in Kampar Peninsula managed by Riau Ecosystem Restoration (RER).

Therefore, a new approach was taken to monitor the diversity of amphibians and reptiles especially to detect freshwater turtles in the Code River, namely the environmental DNA (eDNA) method. Packed with fascinating facts such as physical and behavioural characteristics, this guide also includes focused profiles of 60 snakes, from the Rainbow Boa to the Tropical Rattlesnake. Yet, for as many meanings as we attribute to snakes—from fertility and birth to sin and death—the real-life species represent an even wider array of wonders. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

May have some underlining and highlighting of text and some writing in the margins, but there are no missing pages or anything else that would compromise the readability or legibility of the text. Mark O'Shea is a herpetologist, television broadcaster, zoologist, author, photographer, lecturer and public speaker, and was the Consultant Curator of Reptiles at West Midland Safari Park in the UK for 33 years. The purpose of this study was to identify intestinal worm infections in reticulated pythons (Phyton reticulatus) in captivity. More than any other creature snakes are surrounded by dark, compelling myths and legend, unsurprising since many constrict their prey to death, or kill with a venomous bite, using a diverse armory of venoms that affect the blood, tissues, organs, and respiration.

He has participated as a herpetologist on numerous tropical expeditions for the Royal Geographical Society, Oxford University, Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, University of Melbourne, University of Adelaide, Operation Raleigh, Raleigh Executive, and Discovery Expeditions. For millennia, humans have regarded snakes with an exceptional combination of fascination and revulsion. His life has revolved around snakes for more than five decades and is an advocate for snake conservation. For both professionals and amateurs, the volume offers valuable information about and stunning pictures of these intriguing animals. Yet, for as many meanings as we attribute to snakes-from fertility and birth to sin and death-the real-life species represent an even wider array of wonders.Snakes can convey both beauty and menace in a single tongue flick, and so these creatures have held a special place in our cultures. The Book of Snakes profiles 600 significant species from all 32 families-one in six of all known species-to create a beautiful collector’s piece that is both a significant resource for enthusiasts and scholars, and the most visually stimulating guide on the market.

He has coauthored twelve new snake species descriptions, two of which are included in the second edition of The Book of Snakes.Yet, for as many meanings as we attribute to snakes-from fertility and birth to sin and death – the real-life species represent an even wider array of wonders. The only problem was I was referring to it for the other book I was reading, World Wild Vet, for the snakes in the book but could not find them. There are over 3,700 species of snake found on every continent except for Antarctica, ranging in size from Barbados’ tiny threadsnake to Southeast Asia’s massive reticulated python.

Abstract There are over 3,700 species of snake found on every continent except for Antarctica, ranging in size from Barbados’ tiny threadsnake to Southeast Asia’s massive reticulated python. He is professor of herpetology at the University of Wolverhampton and he previously spent thirty-three years as curator of reptiles at West Midland Safari Park. Yet, for as many meanings that we attribute to snakes--from fertility and birth to sin and death--the real-life species represent an even wider array of wonders.

Therefore, this study aims to determine the diversity and conservation status of snake species in PT GAN. Subsequently, we found 6 species of lizards whose natural distribution does not exist in Yogyakarta and even in Indonesia. Playing a central role in life, it has had profound cultural and historical significance and plays an important role in religious ritual.
