Asian Pitvipers is a combination of travelling experiences, long-term breeding experience (Dick's as well as some other breeders') and data from the literature available. Among the photos some recently described species are found, e.g. Trimeresurus gunaleni, T. rubeus, T. cardamomensis, T. toba and T. phuketensis.
Trimeresurus brongersmai, of which only a few photos of alive specimens have been published so far, is represented with images of various individuals. In addition, Dick Visser has produced a series of watercolours (Tropidolaemus, and also Protobothrops jerdoni) for comparative purposes. An up-to-date checklist provided by Patrick David and Gernot Vogel, current scientific authorities on Asian Pitvipers, forms the appendix of this volume.
