Malabar: Krieger Publishing Company, 2011. Quarto, laminated boards,
WAS $120. A readable compendium of what we know about tree snakes written in a clear, nontechnical style for an adult audience of nature lovers and reptile aficionados. The book is worldwide in scope, discussing the diversity of arboreal snakes and their biology.
"How does one hide when the enemy may lurk above, beside or below? What
sorts of display tactics might serve best for defense and how do they differ
from those used by ground dwelling snakes? How does life in the trees
affect vision? What kinds of temperature and moisture conditions must an
arboreal snake contend with? How do acrobatics affect blood pressure? How
does one find a mate in the canopy? What happens if a snake falls? With
questions like these, Sajdak takes us into a realm as broad as all of
herpetology." From the foreword by William W. Lamar, The University of Texas at Tyler.
