Trans-Pecos ratsnakes, or ‘subocs’ as they are frequently called, are not as prevalent in collections as they could or should be. They are absolutely amazing animals. When the day comes that you decide to keep one, this book is a must-have for you. It is an awesome reference that covers their natural history and husbandry. Click the image to buy the book.
I really like this book. It is a straight-forward reference on some very commonly kept Australian pythons as well as some that are rarely (never) seen outside Australia. Like a lot of people who have been around for more than a handful of years I remember the day when the idea owning a Woma or a Blackhead python was just a dream. And now you can own them and have a great reference for keeping and breeding them. Click the image to buy the book.
Despite being a few years older than some other books this is still an excellent reference written by a pioneer of the ball python business. It is still a must-have for any breeder. Click the image to buy the book.
