Rainbow Boa. Rainbow Boas as Pets. Rainbow boa, biology, behavior, husbandry, daily care, enclosures, costs, diet, interaction and health.
by Ben Team




Overview -
Named for the rainbow-like sheen cast by their scales, rainbow boas (Epicrates spp.) are among the most beautiful snakes in the world. In fact, because they are aesthetically appealing, possess calm personalities and remain smaller than many gigantic constrictors, rainbow boas have become some of the most popular snakes in the world. This popularity has led many keepers to breed rainbow boas, thereby making it easy for enthusiasts to work with these snakes. Whereas snake hobbyists in the past only had access to imported, wild-caught individuals, who were irritable and riddled with parasites, modern keepers can choose from the scads of captive bred rainbow boas produced each year. However, like all other snake species, keepers must educate themselves about their new pet to have a good chance at success. Keepers that fail to do so rarely keep their new pet healthy for very long. Begin this educational journey inside, by learning about the natural history, taxonomy, behavior, biology, captive care and breeding habits of rainbow boas. The author, Ben Team, is an environmental educator and author with over 16 years of professional reptile-keeping experience. Ben currently maintains www.FootstepsInTheForest.com, where he shares information, narration and observations of the natural world. When not writing about plants, animals and habitats, Ben enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife. Covered in this book: - Description - Anatomy - Internal Anatomy - Biology - Behavior - Taxonomy - Phylogeny - The ideal environment - Ecology - Captive considerations - Myths and Misunderstandings - Husbandry - Enclosure - Lighting - Diet - Daily care - Monitoring - Maintenance - Acquiring - Interacting - Health - Breeding .... and much more
