Along with scientific data, keys for determining various species, illustrations, distribution maps, and colour photographs, the book also outlines the cultural importance of snakes on the Indo-Pakistani sub-continent. An extensive chapter on snakebites provides the reader with information on the dangers of snake poisons, as well as criteria for identifying poisonous snakes.
