Facebook - Honduran Milksnakes have been a staple in the world of herpetoculture for decades. Are you looking to acquire Honduran Milksnakes for your collection? Are there any specific husbandry needs? Do you wonder where all these color and pattern variations came from, and who produced them? In the new book entitled “The Guide to Honduran Milksnakes – A Collective History of Honduran Milksnakes for the Hobbyist” will answer all of these questions and many more. The book has 184 pages of information on general care, purchasing, 200+ full-color photographs, and extensive history on all the mutations available today.

The authors, Douglas Mong and James Tintle have explored and researched almost four decades worth of information on these wonderful snakes. They have talked with the early pioneers who imported the original Honduran Milksnakes to some of the most well-known breeders who started the various mutations. These mutations are available at almost any reptile show or online classified ad. Some of the most common genetic mutations are talked about in great detail; amelanistic, anerythristic, hypomelanistic and much, much more.

The book will be available at the largest reptile show, National Reptile Breeders Expo in Daytona, FL on August 16-18, 2013. The authors will be present to sign copies at table #357. Online orders will start on August 31, 2013 and will only be available through ColdBlooded Publishing, LLC or its affiliates.
