The Bites and Stings kit is based on the SA Museum handbook by Mark Judd and Julian White. It contains a collection of preserved specimens of common Australian animals described in the handbook and allows the user to closely examine and identify these animals. A bandage and splint are included for the demonstration and practise of snake bite first aid as described in the book.
