The Living Pythons is the most comprehensive guide to pythons and their close kin. From the popular Ball Python to the obscure Slender Split-jaw, every species is given an extensive write-up. Thirty-six species in all are illustrated and discussed, including the sunbeam snakes, split-jaws, and Neotropical Python, and, of course, popular favorites like the Burmese, Reticulated, and Carpet Pythons. The author gives a complete account of the care and breeding of all these snakes and covers the taxonomy, relationships, and structure of the pythons in great detail. With the comprehensive discussions, beautiful photographs, and instructive drawings, The Living Pythons is a great asset to every serious snake hobbyist and herpetologist.
