Another great shot of Ouroboros, who belongs to my partner.
This little shovel-faced sausage and Tiamat were our first snakes.

A huge announcement on Warren Treacher’s “Treacher’s Creatures” Facebook page:

After nearly two years of work, I would like to announce some exciting news…the sandboa community will soon have a real book dedicated exclusively to sandboas, called, what else? “The Sandboa Book”.
Although my name is on the cover, that is so I can be responsible for any mistakes. The real credit goes to an incredible group of sand boa enthusiasts from around the world, I merely channeled their knowledge, expertise and accomplishments. Their names are in the acknowledgements, throughout the book and/or on the back cover…it is truly their book!

Here is a list of most of the people (in alpha order) who helped and/or collaborated on this work and who deserve all the credit: Dave and Tracy Barker, Mark and Kim Bell, Laura Berry, Chris Christopher, Mike Dee, Brian Emanuel, Giovanni Fagioli, Lee Frey, Jeff Holloway, Chris Jones, Ken Leach, Gerold Merker, Scott Miller, Robert Miller, Dave Nielson, Steve Spawls, Rick Staub, Scott Stark, Roy Stockwell, Romulus Whitaker and with a special thanks for B. Safaei for the Iranian photos and Chaitanya Shukla and V. Sharma for the indian photos, and, of course, my wife and editor Laurie Treacher.
We expect to have it available by Christmas 2014, in both soft and hard copies. Eco publishing and Bean Farm have agreed to distribute individual copies and many of us will have it available at shows next year.



This looks awesome, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. I’m going to see if I can grab some to sell at expos right next to my sand boas!

I strongly suggest feeding sand boas separately. They should never be fed in such a way that you don’t know whether the animal has eaten or not.

I suggest feeding sand boas meals that leave just a small bulge after eating, or no bulge in adults if possible- I prefer to err on the smaller feeder size. Don’t feed subadults and breeding females more often than once weekly, and non-breeding adults and males can be offered food once every other week or so.

Obese sand boas can get very squishy.
