It covers 56 species that inhabit the area as well as a further 24 species occurring in fringe riverine and woodland systems. The reader is able to identify species by means of a photograph supported by a distribution map, a diagnostic features key and descriptive species accounts. The book includes a discussion of venomous snakes, information on first aid for snakebites, and hints for snake prevention around the house.
