We love this 1970s book about snakes by the acclaimed naturalist Herbert S. Zimm and illustrator James Gordon Irving. It tells you all you need to know about these slithery reptiles: how they shed their skin, where they hibernate, how they hypnotise their prey, who their enemies are, even how to apply first aid to a snake bite.
