Book Description

Aug. 1 1996 Barron's Complete Pet Owner's Manuals
Boas are considered by many to be the most beautiful of all snakes, but because they originate in the tropics they require special care when they are kept and bred in captivity. This book stresses the importance of maintaining proper living conditions for the boa, describes basic anatomy, and advises on purchasing, feeding, breeding, and general health care.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, useful information Feb. 28 1999
    By A Customer
    Compared to other snake-keeping paperbacks I've bought which are long on pretty pictures and short on useful information, this book has plenty of both. It has been a huge help in raising my boas and getting them to breed. The book has sections at the end devoted to each type of boa, but most of the book's chapters - feeding, caging, health, etc. - while targeted at boas, are often just as useful for keeping other species of snakes. I highly recommend it for beginner and mid-level keepers.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. To the point. Informative. Oct. 21 2000
    I commend the author on his works. I have purchased many small books on Boids but so far this is the best. Most books overload their pages with pictures and unuseful information, but this author knew what he was doing. A great book for novice and intermediate boa lovers, and would recommend it over and over again. Thanks for a great book.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Very Usefull June 29 2000
    I have read some books about boas, and this one is very usefull when it comes to talk about diseases, even when the chapter about disease is short, it's clear and concise. It also talks about genetics, a little confusing for someone new in breeding but usefull too. I consider this book is for begginers and intermediate boa owners.

    5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites June 19 1999
    By A Customer
    This has become one of my favorite snake books. It has really solid information for the size and price. The pictures are great, but it's the little details that make it unusual, things I never would have thought to do or not do.
