Imported mainly from Colombia, these handsome snakes grow to a length of more than 12 feet. Prospective owners should be aware that this species of boa requires a large cage and a steady diet of small mammals. Titles in this series present basic information on reptiles plus specific instructions for their care. Each book opens with a description of the animal as it exists in its natural habitat, then continues with information on its life cycle and distribution in nature. Readers then get advice on selecting a good specimen, determining sex, and providing proper housing, feeding, and health care. Books are heavily illustrated with instructive color photos.
