Venomous Snakes of the World

Venomous Snakes of the World

A Manual for Use by U.S. Amphibious Forces Based on Poisonous Snakes of the World by the Department of the Navy, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery Revised and Updated by Scott Shupe Nearly half a century ago in 1965, three of the world’s most noted herpetologists and medical professionals, in conjunction with the United States Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, cooperated to produce what at that time was perhaps the most comprehensive publication on the world’s venomous snake species yet published. The book, Poisonous Snakes of the World, quickly became an important reference, not only for military personnel, but also medical professionals, herpetologists, and reptile keepers. Even today it remains a popular book among naturalists, book collectors, zoo personnel, and snake enthusiasts. In keeping with the current understanding of the terms “Poisonous” vs. “Venomous,” the word poisonous has been changed to venomous in the title and throughout the text of this new manual.
