Format: Paperback
This book is the most authoritave and comprehensive book on tarantula care I have had the good fortune to come across! Not in colour but this doesn't detract from it, infact it presents a good no nonsense image and answers any questions a budding or established keeper may have. All in all, great!

Good book for everyone! 22 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is probably the best book I have come across on tarantulas and scorpions. It is easy to read and understand, with lots of information that is useful for both beginners and experienced hands alike. Philippe De Vosjoli has a knack for making his book interesting with his style of writing. This book is definitely worth its price!

Useful Arachnomaniac Book 28 Nov 2009
By Randy J. Mercurio - Published on
Format: Paperback
This short (80 pgs) book is exactly what the subtitle says "The general care and maintenance of tarantulas & scorpions." Although there are no color photos the black and white photos are okay but more importantly is the information the author places between the pics. The table of contents is as follows: Part One: Tarantulas: introduction, general information, selecting tarantulas, housing and maintenance, maintenance, feeding, molting, handling, breeding, raising captive bred tarantulas, notes on popular species, diseases and disorders; Part Two: Scorpions: general information, housing and maintenance, feeding, handling, breeding, notes on popular species, scorpions: source materials. A nice feature is that under the general information of the tarantulas and scorpions sections he explains sexing. Filled with good ideas and suggestions this book will be treasured by anyone beginning with these fascinating animals. Doubtless, if you are a serious hobbyist of tarantulas and/or scorpions you should own this book.
