From the Series Fangs
Death adders can’t move very fast from place to place, so how do these venomous snakes catch their prey? They have the quickest strike of any snake in the world! These crafty killers can strike, bite, and curl up again in less than one tenth of one second. That’s about as long as it takes to blink! In that fraction of a second, the snake’s two-inch long fangs can inject a venom that is one and a half times more toxic than the Indian cobra! In Death Adders: Super Deadly!, large, colorful photos and clear, grade-appropriate text will engage young readers as they are introduced to the natural habitat, physical characteristics, diet, and behavior of these super-deadly serpents.Death Adders: Super Deadly!is part of Bearport’s Fangs! series.
