Many people are afraid of snakes, even people with a well-developed awareness of the environment and the natural world. This is unfortunate: the average snake that turns up in a backyard or on a pond shore (or even in a cellar) should not be regarded as any more frightening than a chipmunk. We hope that this publication will dispel some of the fear of snakes... a fear rooted in a lack of accurate information. We think that most people, once equipped with a little knowledge and understanding of these beautiful, interesting and inoffensive animals, will find that there is nothing left to fear.
