Francesco Redi was a 17th-century Italian physician who recorded his most famous biology experiments in “Experiments on the Generation of Insects”. This work, first published in 1668, disproved the vipers could consume wine, break glass, and that their venom was poisonous if ingested. His observations on snakes helped establish many of the accepted understandings of snakes, particularly venomous snakes. Redi played an important role in refuting ‘spontaneous generation’ – the theory that maggots arose from rotted meat.

 

He was also the very first biologist to describe ectoparasites, ticks, parasite flies, and interesting experiments of chemotherapy. He discusses his observations on hippopotamuses and the capybara
