Poisonous Snakes of FL Booklet 1972

This is a 36 page souvenir booklet available at the Silver Springs attraction – The Ross Allen Reptile Institute. It’s dated 1972.

This was a useful and informative booklet about venomous snakes in Florida. The booklet uses the term “poisonous” to describe snakes. There are significant differences between poison and venom and snakes today are described as being venomous.

The booklet should not be used as a guide for treating snakebites. Snakebite kits are not recommended today. Current medical advice is to get the bite victim to a hospital as quickly as possible for proper medical treatment.
