Rigor Vitae: Life Unyielding

Wednesday, May 09, 2007


Hot off the press: Eagle Mountain Publishing has assembled 79 of the world's top boid experts to write this magnificent new book, which covers every aspect of the biology of this fascinating family. Thirty chapters cover the latest science in the taxonomy, morphology, ecology, behavior, physiology and conservation of boas and pythons. With 448 pages and over 200 color photos, drawings and maps, it's a must-have for anyone with a deep interest in these snakes. Oh yeah, and it's got my painting of a Reticulated Python on the cover, too.

In your opening sentence, I read "boid" as a single syllable. I was wondering why the world's top bird experts wrote a book about snakes ...

I think that qualifies me as a naturalized New Yorker, if not even a Brooklynite.

Patrick: Thanks! It certainly is!
Xris: HA! You mean that old Spike Milligan "Spring has sprung" poem isn't about snakes?
Burning Silo: Thanks, Bev!
