Title Review

Sri Lanka’s snake fauna is diverse and ecologically associated with a range of habitats. It has the highest number of genera (47) and species (101) on record of all the reptiles in the country. Meticulously produced and lavishly illustrated through colour drawings, this book is an authentic, systematic and updated account of snakes of Sri Lanka. Besides an introductory chapter, the book has others which contain a detailed description of all the families (10) and species, alphabetically arranged. Also included is a chapter which deals with various beliefs, cultural traditions and proverbs about snakes prevalent in Sri Lanka, besides a glossary of terms, list of references and indexes to scientific and English names.
