Colour photographs and clear text make this an informative and visually appealing compendium of constrictor habits and habitats.
Booklist - Nancy Bent
These well-known species and their more obscure cousins are all magnificently illustrated with beautiful color photos, with short write-ups of their life histories, range, size, prey, and other natural history. This excellent book is highly recommended.
