This book's team of authors and editors have assembled a book full of large and gorgeous color photographs, detailed life histories, and helpful identification tips about some of Florida's most under-appreciated wildlife. If you are new to Florida, your first encounter with the three-inch long golden orb weaver hanging in a web that might be more than twelve-feet across can be quiet a shock. Or, how about when a huge black scorpion marched across the carpet between you and the TV, apparently looking for your cat.
Well, help is at hand. This inexpensive book is colorful and entertaining enough to hold almost anyone's interest, and the authors make a sincere effort to dispel the unwarranted fears that many people have about spiders and their relatives.
If you are a long-time Florida resident, but with a new interest in spiders, this book's superb photography simplifies identification of the truly dangerous, and tells you where to find them, how to get the less desireable species to look elsewhere for a homestead, and introduces you to the multitude of beneficial spider species.Read more ›
My guess is that the author intended the book for children, not aging naturalists such as myself.
Wonderful illustrations and simple enough for me to identify what has been hanging around my pool cage and dock. ;-) I love it, spiders are not bad, can be a little scary so a girl just has to get to know them and then decide to leave them be (or not). ;-)
Would be a great gift idea even for a child or young adult.
