The population is believed to be stable and estimated between 1000 and 10,000, with the range spread over the whole of Madagascar.
Polyboroides radiatus has a large black and white striped tail, black and white barring on its underside, a grey back and long bare yellow legs. There is a bare pink or yellow skin patch around the eye, and bare white flesh around the mouth. The primaries, which are only viable with the wing outstretched, are striped white and light brown (see photo).
