Pearson, David

Western Australia has a great variety of snakes, from tiny worm-like blind snakes to olive pythons more than five metres long.  There are approximately 110 snake species in WA and around 35 species confined to the State.  New species are still being discovered.  WA has numerous venomous species including some of the most dangerous snakes in the world.  Whether you encounter a snake in the bush or in your own home, remember that the snake’s primary concern is to escape unharmed.

This pocket book covers a selection of snakes most likely to be seen; those that are dangerously venomous; and some others that illustrate the State’s amazing snake diversity.
