Walter E Meshaka, Jr. and Joseph T. Collins, with photographs by Suzanne L. Collins. This pocket guide covers the 22 kinds of snakes found in Pennsylvania, all illustrated with exquisite color images. Pocket guides are an important way to get people involved with wildlife conservation, because the more people become familiar with a group of animals, the more they have invested in them and their habitat. In this guide, the authors reveal the abundant serpent fauna of the Keystone State, with information on size, description, and habits, as well as maps showing where these serpents are found in Pennsylvania.
Contains information on all Pennsylvania serpents and organizes them in the Family Colubridae (Harmless Egg-laying Snakes), Family Dipsadidae (Slender Rear-fanged Snakes), Family Natricidae (Harmless Live-bearing Snakes), Family Xenodontidae (Robust Rear-fanged Snakes), and Family Crotalidae (Pitvipers). 3.75" wide by 6" high, 54 pages
