Sinister SnakesBook - 2003
Introduces snakers and why they sometimes attack humans, and tells of some real-life snake attacks. Suddenly, something rises out of the grass. You have gotten too close to the nest of a poisonous cottonmouth--a snake that will do anything to protect her young...This actually happened to nine-year-old Frank Humphries and his dog, Dixie. It is rare for a snake to attack a human, but it does happen. In Sinister Snakes, author Elain Landau uses dramatic stories, along with full-color photographs, to explain what sometimes happens when people and snakes mix with each other. Anatomy, habitat, behavior, and diet information, as well as a Fast Facts section make this a must read for everyone interested in these fascinating reptiles.
