For author Philippe de Vosjoli, “art is the actualization of a personal vision or message,” and de Vosjoli’s passion is snakes, which he believes are among the most beautiful animals on earth. Incorporating snakes into a naturalistic vivarium, the way lizards and amphibians usually are, adds a new element to snake keeping, elevating the hobby to a true art form. In The Art of Keeping Snakes, de Vosjoli pursues this concept and provides advice for snake keepers who wish to create beautiful displays for their snakes, putting the animals’ welfare and quality of life above all else and simultaneously enhancing their own enjoyment in observing their beautiful snakes in naturalistic environments. Beautifully photographed, inspiring, and informative, The Art of Keeping Snakes is divided into two parts, the first “A New Way to Keep Snakes,” discusses design planning, enclosures and background possibilities, substrates, landscaping, plants, heating/lighting, quarantine and introducing the snakes to the vivarium. This part also includes chapters on feeding, handling, health care, and general maintenance and husbandry. The second part, “Best Display Snakes,” presents over thirty different snakes, including photographs, physical descriptions, and tips for selection, handling, vivarium design tips, feeding, and breeding. The snakes in this part are divided into chapters, categorized by pythons, boas, water and garter snakes, hognose snakes, rat snakes, kingsnakes and milksnakes, and others. Resources and index included.

I always feel sorry for the reptiles I see kept on paper towels in tiny tanks with nothing more than a plastic hide, a water dish & maybe a fake plant or 2. I am already familiar with the concept of bioactive terrariums as I have a number of planted tanks set up for geckos, but am new to snake keeping & keen to provide my newly acquired Okeetee corn snake & Thayer's kingsnake with enriched environments that would allow them to carry out some of their natural behaviors. I bought this book based on a recommendation on cornsnakes.com, & am very happy with the advice in it.

Before getting into keeping a snake I wanted to know exactly what I was going to let myself in for. This book not only gave me that information, but more. It shows how you can create a territory for the snake that is enjoyable and healthy for the animal, ecological, pleasant to look at and requires relatively low maintenance. I ended up dividing the purchasing process into 3 phases: Creating a pleasant vivarium, where the buying of plants and composition were at least as much fun as the anticipation of getting a snake. Then the purchasing of quarantine equipment and finally the snake and food. This book helped me all the way through. I highly recommend it and read it before you purchase any snake.

Upon receiving our book we were willing and ready to take on te responsibility of owning a green tree Python! This book helped us more times than I can count! Easy read with awesome photos, tables and diagrams for easy snake ownership. Will recommend this book to anyone!

This is a must-have if you're considering setting up a bioactive enclosure.

After reading this book, I have no doubt that I have become a better keeper, and that the animals in my care are better for it. While it follow some of the same patterns as other books on keeping, Vosjoli's focus on presentation and display, as well as the welfare of the animal, is a wonderful departure from the sterile set-ups so advocated elsewhere.

I SO appreciate this book, because I am about to get my first snake (a corn) and I am definitely a proponent of naturalistic vivariums. I have them for my frogs and fish and it enhances the experience so much for me and the animals. I can't believe how little information is out there (even on the endless WWW) about how to set up a planted tank for a snake. This book is pretty much it. That said, the author does a great job of telling you the benefits of a vivarium without quite enough detail regarding how to do it. It's enough to go on, but I still will be experimenting quite a bit with things like how to compose my substrate. It would have been easy for him to just list a formula or two instead of just saying why the substrate is important and then only giving handwavy information about what exactly should go into it and the proportions, etc. If there were more info on forums and such about this, then the shortcomings of the book would not be a problem. But this is the only source I can find for how to do this. If anyone knows any good websites for more info about snake vivariums (especially real ones with plants), then please share. I will try to update my review once I have set up a vivarium according to this method and I will comment on my level of success or failure :).
This book is a great new way to enjoy reptiles in general, not just snakes. It tells you which species of snakes are best for display, meaning they won't be hiding all the time, and general information on them.

The real diamond of this book is the information on creating a natural vivarium for your reptile. A vivarium is a tank which simulates the animal's natural environment. Not only are they beautiful to look at it really brings out the natural behavior of the animal and makes them less stressed (therefore far more enjoyable).

This book doesn't really give a step-by-step how-to, but gives enough information to be able to create one of your own with some creativity.
