Summary, etc.: The subject of this narrative is the generic snake. Intended for amateur herpetologists and general naturalists the work treats the origin, evolution and classification of snakes and then discusses morphology and function, how and where snakes live (habitat, adaptations and world patterns), feeding, defense, and reproduction. A chapter deals with the relationships of snakes and humans, and there are sections on taxonomy and classification with minimum information on individual species.--
