These beautiful snakes are sold in pet stores at prices that invite neglect, and most are dead within 3 to 6 months. Their care is best described as requiring methods that are a cross between snake keeping and lizard keeping. The rough green snake is one of the most beautiful and enjoyable of all the North American snakes to keep in captivity, and a genuine affection for these snakes was the primary reason for the writing of this book. If you buy the snake, buy the book.

This book includes notes on the care of brown snakes and ringneck snakes.
