    5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Melissa Kowalski on January 5, 2008
    Format: Paperback
    This handy little paperback contains good information on the erycine boas (sand, rubber, and rosy). For the price, I can't complain.

    While it may provide enough information for others, it left ME with wanting more in-depth information about all three - and their other cousin the Cameroon Burrowing Boa. My ideal erycine boa book would be five times as long, in-depth, and replete with photos. I can never get enough. As the first review said, more information on disposition, handling, history, etc. would be a start.

    I still recommend this book given the low price, information included, and scarcity of similar books.

    Format: Paperback
    A good general book on the various species of rosy, rubber and sand boas. wish there was more detailed info on behavior, natural feeding habits and disposition. However, it is a great book for general knowledge on each species and how to identify, breeding, handling and care. Great photos.

    Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
    I was pretty surprised at how tiny this book it. After reading it entirely, I would have to say that it does have some good information but could have been a lot better. Also there were 3 or 4 photos that were wrongly labeled as different species than what was pictured. For the price I would have liked more info. Wouldn't be too bad for a beginner but as somehow who has been keeping reptiles for a while, this was a disappointment :(

    Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
    Rosy, Rubber, and Sand Boas was an okay book. I expected it to have sections for each species but it was all mixed together in some parts. A very limited amount of information on the Rubber Boa itself was provided. It is a good source of info on Sand Boas, though.

    I pretty much completely agree with Savannah Humes' review, I would say this is an ok book for a beginner yes but I would recommend saving your money and just researching the desired information online, there are some helpful sites out there you just need to look.
