Format: Hardcover
This is great for a beggining pet owner. It has over 100 color photos of different types of snakes and also pictures and diagrams of afflictions. It covers everything from history, nomenclature, care and breeding. There is even a guide to help you determine what type of snake (proper name and origin) you have. Since this is a book on both boas and pythons, it doesn't spend much time or detail on either. Perhaps it's only shortcoming was that there is not much, if anything about IBD (Inclusion Body Disorder)that I have found in other books. Also, there was very little time spent on treating any of the diseases, except how to recognise them, and generally how they are treated. Otherwise, this is a great reference book and good reading for those that wish to know more about boas and pythons.

I am guessing that this book is just old, so not going along with todays knowledge, and this is just another edition. One definitely can find some information in it, but I did not like it. Another positive is its visually attractive issue.

The photos are great but the information is a little outdated but it is still a good buy.I bought mine for only $2,00 plus shipping in very good condition and I would buy it again at that price.

I got the book for my toddler so she could see more pictures of snakes. It has great information about them and is easy to read even for younger children. She enjoys hearing all about them as she's looking at the pictures. Snakes aren't evil, gross, slimy, or mean. They are a very necessary part of our planet. If it weren't for snakes we'd be overrun by rats and mice! This book shows that snakes have a very important part to play on our planet and should get some respect for the job they do to keep things in balance.

Pythons and Boas have long been among the most fascinating of snakes, and with continued encroachment upon their habitat they are now also among the most threatened. Pythons and Boas provides an up to date look at the Boidae, with emphasis being placed on the boids as threatened animals whose futures lie with increased captive breeding by concerned hobbyists. Every genus is covered, from the largest pythons to the smallest wood snakes, with summaries of what is known of their natural history and care in captivity. A special chapter spotlights methods of breeding boas and pythons in captivity. This volume includes the only available modern checklist of the species and subspecies of living boids, as well as a simple key to the genera. Heavily illustrated, with 111 color photos and numerous black and white illustrations and maps.
