A collection of Snake Books

I've included this section not because I want you to go and buy these books from Amazon.com but because if you visit the links, as if you were going to buy, and just make a note of the books author and its title you can then take a trip to your local library and read it for free...... Now doesn't that sound better than parting with your hard-earned money? ... Though, of course, you can buy these books from Amazon.com by clicking on the books and, indeed, I myself own or have borrowed most of the titles shown.
If you click on the book you'll find more information about it on the Amazon.com Web site.

Two of the world's foremost breeders of corn snakes joined to write the ultimate corn snake book covering every aspect of husbandry, breeding and medicine.

As could be expected from renowned photographer Bill Love, this groundbreaking book is illustrated by numerous color photographs showing why corn snakes are the most beautiful and best pet snakes in the world.

Title
The General Care and Maintenance of Burmese Pythons/Including Notes on Other Large Pythons (General Care and Maintenance of Series)

Review
Keeping giant snakes requires large caging and the knowledge of certain procedures for safe handling and maintenance. Husbandry and captive breeding of this popular species is covered in great detail. The original AFH guidelines for responsible ownership and handling of large pythons are included. A chapter presents information on other giant pythons with similar care. Although a black and white book, it remains one of the best on the subject.
