Description:

From the rampant and powerful to the harmless looking and almost invisible, Dangerous Creatures of Africa presents the continent's most feared and potentially lethal creatures, and aims to engender an understanding of them and their world. The book covers animals that can wound, those that are poisonous to eat, and, perhaps most troubling of all, those that cause disease.

Full-colour images, newspaper clippings and case studies enliven the fascinating coverage of the animals' behaviour, biology and distribution; and there's in-depth advice on how to recognise, avoid and survive the dangers they pose. Potential symptoms are detailed where relevant, and first aid advice, both specific and general, is also provided. This book will fascinate and enlighten, and prove to be a handy reference for both residents of, and travellers to the region.
