Scorpions of Southern Africa

Recommended Price 
May 2013
About the book: 
Although southern Africa is one of the best places on earth to see and study scorpions, little information is generally available on these misunderstood and often persecuted creatures. 
This book dispels myths that portray scorpions as deadly venomous animals to be killed on sight, and offers an intriguing insight into the amazing adaptations that have enabled scorpions to survive over millions of years.
Layman's terms are used in the book, as far as possible, and a glossary of more complicated terminology is provided. Distribution maps and photographs are given for over 50 southern African species as well as practical information about where to look for scorpions and how best to handle these often feared creatures.
