Kingsnakes and Milksnakes in Captivity

by Robert Applegate

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Kingsnakes & Milksnakes in Captivity by Robert Applegate The kingsnakes and milksnakes are some of the most beautiful of the world's snakes. They are found in a wide range of colors and patterns. Some have spots, some have bands or rings around the body, and some have stripes from head to tail. Many are coral snake mimics with bright red, yellow (or white), and black bands or rings. This great variety makes the kingsnakes and milksnakes very popular captives. Their bright, sharply contrasting colors and crisp patterns invariably tend to elicit "Oh!" and "Ah!" exclamations from non-reptile enthusiasts as well. Their small size, simple cage requirements, easily supplied diet (for most subspecies), adaptability to life in captivity, and great splendor have made them popular with beginning hobbyists as well as more advanced herpetoculturists. With Kingsnakes & Milksnakes in Captivity, Robert Applegate's goal is to provide the reader with the essential information for the long-term care and maintenance of this beautiful and variable group of snakes. Kingsnakes & Milksnakes in Captivity is well-written and easy to read and the information contained within is based on Applegate's many years of experience. In this exciting new book, Applegate clearly promotes his strong belief of "Conservation Through Captive Propagation".
