Description


There are 8,000 snakebites in the US every year. Plant ingestion results in 63,000 calls to national poison centers annually. This guide identifies some of the most feared and dangerous North American species of animals and plants and its purpose is twofold: 1) to debunk irrational myths about species such as snakes, spiders, sharks and bears; 2) to educate people about the proper action to take if one is confronted and/or injured by these dangerous species. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, pocket-sized folding guide is an excellent source of portable information and ideal for field use. Made in the USA.
