I was concerned there may not be enough full color photos of the snakes but there are tons of great pictures.
If you are getting this for a child one word of caution. Towards the beginning of the book there are a few photos of reactions to snake bites that are pretty graphic. My son was ok with it but I wasn't expecting that.
Other than that if you have a snake lover in the family this is a great choice!
