photographs by Nic Bishop
Thousands of red-sided garter snakes have recently awoken at the Narcisse Snake Dens in Manitoba. Snake Scientist Bob Mason has been studying these snakes since 1991. Author Sy Montgomery joined Mason on one of his field trips, documenting his observations and experiments. His discoveries about snake pheromones will fascinate young readers, as will the close-up pictures by renowned photographer Bishop.
Easy to read and understand, The Snake Scientist will turn kids into junior herpetologists.
