About: My First Book of Namibian Snakes

Snakes have always held an eery fascination for us. Maybe it’s the way in which they move, or how they catch their prey. Yet, they are not all dangerous, nor are they aggressive. In fact, snakes have a very useful role to play in the environment. My First Book of Namibian Snakes introduces everyone interested in nature to Namibia’s diverse and interesting snakes, from the deadly mamba to the enormous python, or the wriggling sidewinder and the egg-eater. It is intended to help children and interested adults, for that matter, to better understand these creatures by facilitating identification by means of a wide range of photographs and providing information on the various species in a manner that is easy to understand. My First Book of Namibian Snakes features 46 snake species found in Namibia with over 240 photographs and a wide variety of information on each species, and some information on snakebite is also included. Francois Theart is an environmentalist and field researcher who specializes in snake ecology and human-snake conflict. He has 15 years experience in dealing with snakes in a wide variety of settings throughout Namibia. Christo Buys is a medical practitioner with 47 years' experience in treating snakebite victims. He developed the Namibian national guidelines on snakebite management and founded the Namibia Snakebite Interest Group.
