Dangerous Animals: Parasites, Poisonous, Predatory by Vladimir A. Timokhanov is about the dangerous creatures of Eurasia, particularly those dangerous to humankind. The book describes the animals and how to prevent becoming a victim and the first-aid measures to be taken in case of infection or attack. There are 280 species described and 535 illustrations, which the author himself drew. Timokhanov arranged his book starting with the most microscopic invertebrates, then continues with arthropods such as bumblebees, and finishes with vertebrates, including common mammals and animals that people keep as pets. Some creatures described in the book pose little danger to humans, but others are deadly. The book concludes with a complete index of the Latin names of the creatures. The author intends the book to be a reference for students and educational organizations.
Dangerous Animals: Parasites, Poisonous, Predatory by Vladimir A. Timokhanov is fascinating. I learned an enormous amount about the creatures that live in Eurasia. Not only that, the book serves an extremely valuable purpose by alerting people of the dangers faced by the animal kingdom, along with what to do if a person becomes a victim of one of the creatures that Timokhanov describes. The illustrations by the author are done in impressive detail and aid significantly in teaching readers about the animals. In addition to encouraging people to read the book to increase their knowledge about dangerous animals, I recommend it as a textbook for high school or college students. I hope the author will continue his excellent work with a similar book about dangerous creatures of North America, South America, Africa, and Australia. This book can save much suffering and even lives.
