About this book

Snakes of Malawi has taken over 40 years of field research to complete and is the most up-to-date snake guide on the country's snakes in more than half a century. This 330-page book contains 66 distribution maps, 151 colour photographs and 134 head scale drawings that together accurately describe all of the 65 recorded species found in the Malawi. Malawi has quite a selection of species for such a small land area, but out of the 65 only 12 have the potential to kill a human. That means that over 80% of all recorded species are non-fatal to humans. In fact 43% are completely harmless and carry no venom at all. This guide will provide easy and fast identification of all species, together with bite symptoms and treatment.
