The Hempodo lands are commonly known to house dinosaurs, but within their dense jungles another rarer group of creatures reside: the flying serpent. This work by Polycolp exhaustively catalogues the three dozen or so known species of flying serpent. The habitat, geographic range, and behavior of each species is lavishly illustrated with multiple images and maps. Although over 100 years old, no other text on the subject approaches the quality of this work.
