This virtual encyclopedia of the rattlesnake became a natural history sensation when it was first published in 1956. The republication of the Second Edition, with a new foreword by Harry W. Greene, will give amateur and professional herpetologists alike reason to rejoice. Volume 1 covers taxonomy, physiology, and behavior; Volume 2 concentrates on the rattlesnake's interactions with other organisms, including humans. Klauber's detailed and thorough study is still one of the most complete rattlesnake references ever published.Greene's Foreword discusses the initial impact and continuing value of Klauber's work and recounts some of the advances in knowledge of rattlesnake biology during the past 25 years. Also included is an update of rattlesnake taxonomy.

From the Back Cover:

This volume of Klauber's monumental study focuses on rattlesnakes themselves--their ecology, taxonomy, physiology, reproduction, and behavior, from climbing proclivity and swimming ability to defensive and predatory activity.

About the Author:

Laurence M. Klauber was an electrical engineer who began seriously studying reptiles in his forties. He volunteered to become the San Diego Zoo's first Curator of Reptiles, and his fascination with snakes and lizards eventually brought him international scientific recognition. He died in 1968 at the age of eighty-four.
