Lizards of Sri Lanka is a modern checklist of relevant species, featuring an illustrated key (a first for the region), and showing thumbnail images for the benefit of non-technical users of the guide. There after is the heart of the volume, comprising species accounts, that include multiple images of each taxa (museum specimens, in case of rare species), showing different ontogenetic stages, sexes and colour morphs. Following this is a short listing of species erroneously or dubiously recorded from Sri Lanka. At the end of the book are the glossary, gazetteer of localities, references and scientific names index.
