The range of snakes of medical significance in Malaysia currently encompasses four families of snakes (Natricidae, Elapidae, Pythonidae and Viperidae). There are limited data on the distribution of snakes in the country. The following account is based on available published information on snakes recorded from Peninsular Malaysia, Labuan, Sabah and Sarawak. This book should be viewed as a guide, especially for healthcare professionals, to identify and manage snake related injuries in Malaysia. Information on the snake species listed here is based on the local data and those from neighbouring countries. Due to their geographical proximity, snakes occurring in Peninsular Malaysia are genetically closer to those from Thailand and Singapore, while those on Sabah and Sarawak are naturally closer to populations from Brunei Darussalam, Kalimantan and islands of the southern Philippines.
