This beautiful work is primarily a book of photographs. Each species (subspecies) of python has its own account chock full of images, plus invaluable information on descriptions and natural history. But, unlike other publications on pythons, it has detailed range maps for each form. In total, 29 species of python are covered, hailing from Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and China. The region of the Malay Archipelago includes the insular nations of Indonesia, Brunei Darussalam, Sarawak and Sabah, Timor Leste, Philippines, and Papua New Guinea. Several other areas are also covered.
A bold 371 pages, this hard-cover book (9.5" x 7") is replete with remarkable photographs of pythons, many taken in situ, as well as a Glossary, Appendix (Pythons of the World), and detailed References and Further Reading.
This is an immediate classic and must-have book for all snake and python aficionados.
