The introduction covers snakes in the environment, snake-bite prevention and first aid, habitats, glossary and identification diagrams. There is an introduction to each family and genus. There are dichotomous keys to each family, genus species and subspecies for identification. The species descriptions include the common English name, the current scientific name and how to pronounce it, a distribution map, and details of etymology, appearance, range, ecology, disposition, danger level and the IUCN Red List Category. There is also a species checklist, a venom toxicity table and guidance on what to do if you encounter a stranded sea snake or if you find a snake at your home.
