Poisonous Animals of Malaya
At the time this book was published, Tweedie was Assistant Curator of the Raffles Museum of Singapore. Present day Malaysia is fortunate in that it has few species of poisonous animals compared to many other places in the tropics. Tweedie's purpose in publishing the book was to popularise the identification of this minority so that their more numerous and harmless fellows would not be killed when there was no need to do so. The subject was a fitting one for the author who had a rather handsome snake, Macrocalamus tweediei, named after him, although it is not believed to be poisonous. Good Paperback. First Edition. 90 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
