Here is a truly comprehensive and beautiful volume covering all the reptiles and amphibians kept in terrariums plus virtually all the oddballs and rarities any hobbyist is likely to ever see or want to know about. Illustrated in full color are hundreds of common and rare reptiles and amphibians, invertebrates, food animals, terrarium plants, environments, and diseases, with hundreds more black and white photos and line drawings. The authoritative and useful text covers thousands of species, the majority of genera, and hundreds of topics dealing with terrarium care and natural history. The alphabetical arrangement makes it easy to find information on almost any topic you can think of. -- Midwest Book Review
