BOOKS

There are not many books available specifically designed or specialising in Green Tree Pythons but there are quite a few books which have been written with Pythons in mind. I have attempted to list all the relevant books in this area with a rating which is based on my own account of each book I have read with content in mind.
Some of the books listed below are now out of print, or rare and old books which I have collected over the years and in some cases I have more than one which I will be selling.
