This is the second volume of Rattlesnakes of Arizona.  This volume deals with aspects of natural history, behavior, evolution, and conservation. The thirteen chapters are written by twenty-two leading experts in the field.  The emphasis of this book is on the species that are known to habituate in Arizona and neighboring areas.  There is even information on the development of the rattle and, of course, venom. With Tell Hicks involved, the artwork is superb.


Here is the Table of Contents so you may know the depth of knowledge contained in this book.
