BBC Wildlife Magazine Book of the Month
"Mark O'Shea is probably best known for his exploits on television,
but he is also a serious scientist,
which is refleced in the pages dealingwith evolution and anatomy.
He has that enviable knack of communicating scientific knowledge in
layman's terms and backing it up with terrific accounts of his first-hand encounters.
The book will appeal to a wide readership, from serious students to anyone with a crush on snakes. "
Dr Tony Phelps, Cape Reptile Institute
BBC Wildlife Magazine May 2007:78-79.
"Through this book confirms that boa constrictors cannot swallow elephants,
Mark O'Shea's undoubted enthusiasm for these snakes provics plenty of consolation
by evoking the magic of the natural world. His quoted observations, in particular,
bring the species to life."
Fergus Collins, Features Editor, BBC Wildlife
BBC Focus Magazine May 2007:84.
