The Boa Constrictor Manual

Front Cover
i-5 Publishing LLC, 1998 - Pets - 84 pages
Boa constrictors remain the number one large snake kept by the general public and their popularity is well deserved. They are beautiful, hardy and, for the most part, docile and relatively safe pets. THE BOA CONSTRICTOR MANUAL is the revised and upgraded version of the original best seller, The General Care and Maintenance of Red-Tailed Boas by Philippe de Vosjoli. This book features complete husbandry information and includes acute breeding observations by Jeff Ronne, boa constrictor specialist. In addition, Roger Klingenberg, DVM discusses the diseases and disorders associated with boas and addresses IBD (inclusion body disease), a critical health concern for this species.
