There are 8,000 snakebites in the U.S. every year and 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. Its purpose is to debunk irrational myths about species such as snakes, spiders, sharks and bears; and 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.
