You may think it’s only in the tropics that you sustain a dangerous bite from a snake or insect, when in fact you could be enjoying a lovely sunny holiday in Spain or France when you feel a sharp sting on your ankle…
Or your kids are playing in the water and suddenly you hear a scream… You’re enjoying a nice meal when suddenly you get stung… But what do you do next? That’s where Dr. Venom’s Poisonous Creatures of the Mediterranean comes in handy. Spiders, insects, reptiles, amphibians and marine creatures, all animals you wouldn’t want to even come across, let alone be bitten by are in this handbook.
