Format: Paperback
One of the most reader-friendly and authoritative books of its kind Ive ever read. Not only does this book give a solid outline of the natural history of these snakes, but it also answers (Thoroughly!) all the questions/issues that might arise in the captive care/breeding of the corn and rat snakes.

The author, Phil Purser, is an authority on these snakes whom I once had the honor of meeting at a university lecture; his name on a book about herps is a definite stamp-of-quality.

If you have to buy a corn snake book, THIS IS THE ONE!!!!

I purchased this book a couple of weeks before getting my first snake, and I was very glad I did! This book is very easy to understand, was interesting to read, and answered all my questions. I work at a pet store and I recommended it to all customers thinking about getting a corn snake. I even recommend it to young readers because it is so user friendly.

As someone who kept snakes as pets as a child, and now in my 40's have picked up interest in the hobby again, I found this book to be both practical for the newcomer as well as detailed enough for an experienced hobbyist.

It is not one of those general pet guide books where they give you the basic care requirements in boilerplate text and insert a few pictures of the species in question (unfortunately a lot of the TFH books of the past did this.) This book was written from the ground up as a complete care guide to corn snakes, perhaps the very best species of pet snake out there. At 128 pages including the index, this is not a huge investment of time to read, and writing style is both easy as it is informative.

While there is a HUGE emphasis on ball pythons out there right now, the corn is a beautiful, intelligent animal that deserves the attention of anyone serious about acquiring a pet snake. This book will help you to keep and raise a healthy, attractive pet that you will be able to enjoy for years without having to wrry about the impact on the environment.

I LOVE this whole TFH line of books!

This book is excellent, great for beginners and great for hobbyists that have been keeping Corn and Rat Snakes for years! This book does provide more information on Corn Snakes but has a small section dedicated to Rat Snakes. The book covers how to create the perfect environment for your snake, how to feed it, how to breed it and everything in between. I highly suggest this book!!!

I am building a library for the King and Milk Snake breeding program we want to excel at. To excel, you need great reference materials and this book does just that. The seller was able to get it packaged and shipped very quickly, and I received it several days sooner than was predicted. I would recommend this seller to anyone needing what I have described. Thanks.

I finally gave in and got my daughter a corn snake for her birthday. I've tried to read up on the snake and how to take care of it from articles on the Internet. Finally got this book, which covers a lot of the basics for someone beginning corn snake care.
