Iranian protesters have burned an effigy of the UK's ambassador in Tehran as the country's judiciary warned he is now 'persona non grata'. A cardboard cutout of him was burned alongside UK and US flags at Tehran University by regime loyalists.

Pythons, boas, vipers, and a world more. In beautifully colorful fashion, find out about the fascinating universe of snakes. A vividly illustrated introduction to these reptiles goes up close and personal, and covers everything from origins and evolution to physical characteristics and habitat, from methods of reproduction to styles of hunting. Poisons, the meaning of their colors, and even snakes' representation in myth and legend, is here. The detailed discussions cover how and what snakes eat, which species are endangered, and defensive behaviors--including shows and bluffs to impress their enemies, the postures of poisonous snakes (and their harmless imitators), and even the game of playing dead to throw predators off. The showcase is a dictionary of species, broken up by family and subfamily; thrilling photos bring you right up to each snake's face and textured skin, drawings add additional detail, and maps show distribution patterns throughout the world.

It's a decent book. There are some great photos and almost most of the information is correct and informative... however, there are a lot of drawings as well, that appear to be nothing more than basic digital images (some are reminiscent of clip art) and a lot don't show the correct details for identification or even appear to be the proper species.
However, in the quick runthrough I gave it after it arrived today, I found a good number of potentially critical errors:

1: Page 9. Under the Classification tab, it shows four boxes with the for taxonomic classifications of reptiles. The pictures and the scientific nomenclature are correct. However, next to Rhynchocephalia, it should say "Tuataras" to make it correct. Instead, it has a picture of a tuatara but fact says "toads." However, as most people know, toads aren't even reptiles.

2: Page 20. There are three head drawings showing the types of fangs on a snake. The first two (Opistoglyphous [rear fanged colubrids] and Proteroglyphous [elapids] respectively) can get away with the same head because they can share a lot of features in the area, the same head shouldn't be used to show the fangs of Solenoglyphs (vipers) because of the fact that they don't have rounded pupils (except for a very few exceptions [i.e. the night adders]) therefore making this misleading.

3: Page 25. Bottom right picture, the subtext says Elaphe notaeus. However, it is a picture of Eunectes notaeus - the yellow anaconda. Elaphe notaeus isn't a real snake and if it were, it would be a member of the ratsnake group, and therefore, not ovoviviparous. Just a typo, but still incorrect information.

4: Page 27. Boiga denchophila should say Boiga dendrophila.

5: Page 29. For image number two, it shows Crotalus cerastes, the sidewinder, which is a species of rattlesnake found in the United States and Mexico, which is correct with the picture and other species listed. However, next to the correct latin name, it says "North African Horned Viper" which is actually Cerastes cerastes. A viper from Africa and the middle east that has a much higher venom potency than the sidewinder.

6: Page 117. Bottom right, it shows a drawing of a Southern hognosed snake, but has it mislabeles as Xenodon simus. It should actually say Heterodon simus.

7: Page 155. An entire page devoted to Thamnophis sauritus. The eastern ribbon snake and it's subspecies. The only picture it shows, however, is of an massasauga (genus Sistrurus) which is a type of rattlesnake. This, in my opinion, is a big mistake that shouldn't have been overlooked, or made in the first place.

8: Page 156. Top right picture of "Thamnophis sirtalis (Common garter snake)" (which is what the page is for) is actually a picture of a ribbon snake (Thamnophis sauritus). This isn't a crucial mistake like the other, however.

9: Page 245. The page for Crotalus lepidus. The Rock rattlesnake. Two of the species occur in the United States, however, the only two pictures shown on that page (labeled Crotalus lepidus) are actually pictures of Crotalus durissus. A species of rattlesnake that doesn't occur in the United States for one, and doesn't look anything like C. lepidus, for two. The pictures shown are of a different subspecies than the two shown on the prior page for C. durissus.

Other small errors/typos include incorrectly/inconsistently capitalized species names (after a capitalized Genus name, the species and subspecies should be in lowercase) and misspelled words throughout the book.

I don't mean to just go in and nitpick the book, but I feel that these are rather large mistakes that should have been caught during editing or avoided altogether.

I purchased this book for my nephew for his 9th birthday. He's a snake loving kid so this book was perfect. When we recieved the book it had a foul odor like moth balls. After leaving the book outside fanned opoen to air out we still have the problem. I contacted the seller and he immediately refunded my money. We are going to donate the book to our local libarary. I would reccomend this seller and will buy from him again if I see different books from him. Customer Service is hard to find mow a days but this guy has it down to a science.Thank you for making this a great shopping experiance.

Maybe we red white and blue citizens of the U.S. are spoiled but this recent translation of the hit spanish book leaves a lot to be desired. I was red in the face when I saw so many spelling errors, and photos posted with erroneous descriptions. I was blue that I had wasted money on this book. And finally it would have been better off if they had left the pages blank white.
