:These minor criticisms aside, it is still a great book and one that I refer to frequently. I do wish that Werler (a great herp photographer who shot many Mexican species for the first time) had included more of his own photographs. Their summary of Blindsnake (Leptotyphlops) behavior is the best I've seen in a popular work. I also would like to see similar treatment on the remainder of Texas' herps--we have enough field guides!
I found the information about the blind snakes especially interesting also. I am currently obbsessed by how the foreign fire any (anybody want to supply the species name - Satan something or other)affect the blind snakes.There's not a whole lot of information out there on this. But a Mr.Barry Sullender @ Rice University supplied the following citation- PREDATION ON IMPORTED FIRE ANTS BY BLIND SNAKES
