Beautiful publication, which contains also a picture of a man eaten by a retic. I knew those pictures were true, but I remember it was very difficult for me (almost impossible) to convince other people of this fact: they thought all those kind of pictures were fake!
After reading this issue, we would pay even more attention in handling venomous and also "non venomous" snakes (Rhabdophis for instance). You can also see a picture of a huge Xenochrophis piscator: never thought they would be that big size!
