    My newest thematic cryptozoology e-book is lastly
    right here, my 33rd e-book in complete, and dedicated to a topic that has by no means
    beforehand obtained book-length remedy.

    Few creatures divide human opinion so
    diametrically relating to their perceived benevolence, or malevolence, as do
    snakes – the eternally-cursed serpent form in accordance with Christianity, essentially the most
    divine and blessèd of reptiles in accordance with Hinduism, vilified and honored,
    sanctified and demonised, passively protected, actively annihilated, usually
    ignored, however by no means deemed undeserving of discover if or when encountered.

    The above is particularly true, furthermore, when
    investigating whether or not our world could include extraordinary snake types nonetheless
    undescribed by science and likewise whether or not snakes can exhibit weird behaviour
    presently deemed scientifically inconceivable.

    Printed by Coachwhip Publications,
    this uniquely engrossing e-book gives essentially the most intensive survey of secret
    snakes and serpent surprises ever printed, wherein I study such diversified
    envenomed and constricting controversies as Africa’s crowing crested cobra,
    thriller snakes of the Mediterranean lands, the Mongolian dying worm, North
    America’s boss snakes, and Parker’s serpentine slayer from Papua, plus St
    John’s viper, the Virgin Mary snakes, and the pre-cursed Eden serpent, Kipling’s
    Karait and Sherlock Holmes’s Speckled Band, gargantuan anacondas with horns and
    the tiny however terrifying pichu-cuate, bushy snakes and feathered serpents,
    Glycon the speaking horse-headed ophidian deity of historic Rome and honored
    king cobras, to not point out huge serpent kings and venom-quelling snake-stones,
    serpents that shriek, bounce, fly, and hypnotise their prey by way of deadly fascination,
    plus a lot extra.

    So put together your self to be duly fascinated –
    however solely in essentially the most innocent, non-lethal method! – by the ophidian choices
    revealed right here. However, it might maybe be greatest to not stare for too lengthy into the eyes of any of the
    limbless ones portrayed inside this e-book’s complete assortment of
    illustrations, simply in case…
