About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Indonesian

The purpose of this book is to change the negative image that people have about snakes, and also to help people in the Jabodetabek area to understand and easily identify the snakes around them. The Jabodetabek area is located in west Java, and is short for Jakarta, Bogor Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi. It is a densely populated area, which also includes Jakarta, Indonesia's capital city.

The first introductory chapters explain in layman's terms what snakes are, and look at snake–human interactions and conservation efforts. The bulk of the book consists of species profiles of both venomous and non-venomous snakes, which consist of one or several colour photos, a short bilingual description, and symbols to indicate the snake's food groups, its habitat and how venomous it is.
