Fairy Ring and Snakebite - Natural Poisons on Hiking Trails
Hexenring und Schlangenbiss - Naturgifte am Wanderweg
Poisonous snakes and poison mushrooms have always appeared sinister to humans and are deeply entwined in our mythology. In most cases our fears are unfounded and are rooted in our ignorance of which animals and plants are truly poisonous. This documentary, from prize-winning film maker Kurt Mündl, shows in extraordinary images the real dangers confronting hikers and walkers in the form of natural poisons in forests and meadows and gives fascinating insights into the life and protective mechanisms of flora and fauna.
