The second volume of the comprehensive herpetology reference Venomous Reptiles of the United States, Canada and Northern Mexico is a 'must' recommendation for any college-level science holding serious about herpetology. It completely revises their reference VENOMOUS REPTILES OF NORTH AMERICA and includes the authors' research as well as data descriptions and stories from other references. General background information on Crotalus includes specific details on rattlesnake behavior, with each species including color photos, range maps, and specific discussions. Packed with bibliographic references and the latest research, these two volumes together are a 'must'.
