Rosy, Rubber, and Sand Boas
Titles in the Reptile and Amphibian Keeper's Guides series instruct in all aspects of housing, feeding, breeding, and general maintenance of reptiles and amphibians. This guide deals with three varieties of terrestrial and fossorial snakes. Two varieties are from the southwest United States and Mexico, while the third (sand boas) are native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. Detailed information on keeping these constrictor snakes is supplemented with a wealth of instructive color photos.
