Boa Constrictor Manual
As attractive, relatively docile and safe reptiles, boa constrictors are considered some of the best large pet snakes. With advice from three herpetological experts and outstanding colour photos, The Boa Constrictor Manual discusses at length all you need to know about caring for your boa constrictor. Common diseases and disorders are thoroughly covered, with IBD, an epidemic viral disease in captive boas, discussed in great detail. All subspecies and many of the currently bred pattern and colour morphs can be found in this book. It is a must have for both beginner and expert snake keepers.
