Reviews

Boas are a diverse group of both New and Old World snakes. Adult specimens of certain sand boa species attain a maximum size of only two to three feet, while the green anaconda may exceed 30 feet in length. For decades, humans have maintained boas in captivity. Recreating a suitable environment in which various boa species can thrive and even reproduce has always been a challenge for the herpetoculturist. Captive Husbandry and Propagation of the Boa Constrictors and Related Boas contains detailed information specific to boa species and subspecies. All major captive care considerations are addressed allowing boa keepers to provide for, and possibly breed their captives. Comprehensive chapters on heating devices and their application to herpetoculture, and designing a herp room will be extremely beneficial for everyone maintaining any species of reptiles, as well as the boa keeper. (**Short Blurb) This work contains detailed information specific to boa species and subspecies, addressing all major captive care considerations which allow boa keepers to provide for and possibly breed their captives. Also included are chapters on designing herp rooms and heating devices.

"… I would recommend this book to any boa fan. Beginners to advanced herpetoculturists will enjoy this easy-reading publication." -- Jeff Gonser, Notes From Noah, XXIV(9), 1997.

"Fogel covers what is needed to keep these animals healthy and what is needed to hopefully get your boas to breed." -- Fred Moormeier, Pacific Big Cat & Exotic Animal Rescue Newsletter, February 1998.
