Description

Anyone can look at a snake and see a creature unique unto itself, a reptile with a set of zoological and biological traits that are entirely its own. Just looking at this distinct animal raises many scientific questions. With regard to evolution, how did such an animal come to be? This title is the definitive scientific guide to the functional biology of snakes. Written for both herpetologists and a more general audience with an interest in this species. Chapter topics include the evolutionary history of the snake; feeding; locomotion; the structure and function of skin; circulation and respiration; sense organs; sound production, and reproduction. Contains all the latest research and advances in our biological knowledge of the snake.
