Book Description

6 Jan 2003

The paperback edition of this successful, highly illustrated title offers guidance and practical advice to parents and children when choosing a more unusual family pet. From snakes to frogs to tarantulas, this guide covers all of the most popular exotic species.

The term ‘exotic’ traditionally refers to those creatures unfamiliar to the general pet-keeping public but gradually more and more people are
choosing unusual pets. Especially since these pets in many cases offer low maintenance, low allergy, space-saving alternatives to traditional pets.

All the animals included in the book are widely available from captive-bred stocks in the UK, Europe and the USA. They are divided into four sections – Amphibians, Reptiles I (Lizards & Tortoises), Reptiles II (Snakes) and Invertebrates.

In Collins Exotic Pet Handbook, David Manning gives interesting and amazing facts, cautionary warnings and practical information about the
most popular and often collected amphibians, reptiles and invertebrates. For each animal there is advice on housing your pet and maintaining a healthy environment for it, dietary needs and suitable food, handling and common behaviour characteristics.

With more than 120 specially commissioned colour photographs, sound practical advice and fascinating hints and tips Collins Exotic Pet Handbook is invaluable for all owners and prospective buyers of more unusual pets.

Format:Hardcover
At first I wasnt sure whether this would be one of those broad topic but low detail books, but upon purchasing this title I was pleasantly surprised. It contains a good degree of detail on a wide range of pets: reptiles, amphibians, chelonolia and invertebrates are all covered. If you are looking for an exotic pet, but would like to read up on your options, this is the book for you.
