Re: Good reptile books

Here's a few that I own that I think are worthwhile.

The Herpetoculture of Leopard Geckos used to be the bible for leos. It might be a little dated now, I'm not sure. I have it, but I haven't kept up with leos.

The Art of Keeping Snakes, is also a bit old, but it's a good introduction of natural/bioactive enclosures.

The Complete Boa Constrictor is good if you're at all interested in boas.

America's Snake: The Rise and Fall of the Timber Rattlesnake. It's not about captive snakes, but it is an interesting read on wild Timber rattlers.

Snakebit: Confessions of a Herpetologist is along the same vein. But, it focuses a bit more on the herper rather than the herps.
...the old ones ... knew in their bones... that death exists, that all life kills to eat, that all lives end, that energy goes on. They knew that humans are participants, not spectators. -- Stephen Bodio, On the Edge of the Wild
