book looks great and I already sent payment for the preorder. Are they only doing a single limited run of the book? Do you have any idea how many total prints/books will be run off or will it depend on preorder volume? Just curious as I was surprised to see it was a limited run instead of an ongoing printing.
I believe all that will be determined by how well the book sells. But, I intend to sell out. They're also planning on doing a run in the German language.
I believe that, just like the chondro book by Greg Maxwell, this isn't just another book about a species of snake that you see in every single pet store in the U.S. Not that those other snakes aren't fascinating, but I think people are always ready to embrace something different and learn something new. The suboc, like the chondro, is a very specialized animal. There are very few species that compare to either, in the animal kingdom. Although it's called a "ratsnake" and although there are some loose similarities, the Trans-Pecos Ratnake isn't really a ratsnake, in the most traditional sense. They're really their own thing in almost COUNTLESS ways. And that's exactly what I did my best to point out in this book.
