Handbook of Nature Study: Reptiles

by Anna B. Comstock

Description: Snakes and turtles form the subject of the fifth section of Handbook of Nature Study. After discussing the general habits of snakes and dispelling widely-held misconceptions, three common nonpoisonous snakes are examined in detail: the garter snake, the milk snake, and the water snake. A short discussion of turtles follows, along with recommendations on caring for turtles in aquariums and brief descriptions of seven common species.
