Book Description

Boas are a diverse group of both New and Old World snakes. Adult specimens of certain sand boa species attain a maximum size of only two or three feet, while the green anaconda may exceed 30 feet in length. For decades, humans have maintained these snakes in captivity, but recreating an environment where boas can thrive and even reproduce has always been a challenge for the herpetoculturalist. This text provides information specific to boas or subspecies. All major captive care considerations are addressed, allowing the boa keeper to provide for and possibly breed their captives.

This is a great book if you are looking for information on breeding boas.It gives strategies and proven methods for a few different boids.The info is great.The reason I did not give this book a 10 is because I think they could have added more pictures for the price

5.0 out of 5 stars Captive Husbandry & Propagation of Boa Constrictors Aug. 4 2004
By A. P Young - Published on Amazon.com
This is the perfect book for all ranges and levels of Boa owners from a single animal owner all the way to a professional breeder. This book is scaled more to the professional but, I highly recommend this book be in every library. Extremely informative. The book has some Color pictures, a perfect guide to sexing different Boas with a extremely well written chart for sexing many many boas, In - Depth coverage of husbandry of Boas, Heavily detailed on different species of Boas, This book also has an excellent list of both the Common names and the Scientific names of Boas, and Well worth the money!
