Here is a well-written aid for both the amateur and professional herpetologist in the identification and husbandry of the snakes of Thailand. The first part is concerned with general aspects of husbandry and also offers specific suggestions regarding the care of snakes native to tropical
Thailand. Climatic data for all regions of Thailand are offered and suggestions are made for their application to the care of Thai snakes. The second part of the book focuses on each of the snakes known to inhabit Thailand. The coloration, pattern, scale counts, diets and food preferences, natural habitats, and, wherever possible, the breeding habits of each are described. Specific suggestions are made for the care and housing of each genus and, in many cases, for individual species. A total
of 164 color photographs, including 115 individual species and subspecies, are included. Also, a series of 36 detailed drawings highlight the characteristics of head scalations of 33 different Thai snakes.
