3.0 out of 5 stars UK TORTOISE BUYERS 20 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
THE BOOK IS QUITE HELPFUL IN ITS SECTION ABOUT PICKING A HEALTHY TORTOISE BUT FOR ME THAT IS WHERE IT ENDS. THE BOOK IS GEARED FOR AMERICAN READERS, THIS IS A PROBLEM WHEN IT DESCRIBES SELECTING A TORTOISE TYPE AND HOW TO BEST CARE FOR THE COMMON ONESAS IT GOES ON ABOUT CLIMATES NOT APPLICCABLE TO THE UK. tORTOISES AVAILABLE IN AMERICA ARE ALSO DIFFERENT TO THE UK- THE AMERICAN THEME CONTINUES WHEN TALKING ABOUT TORTOISE PROTECTION GROUPS AND LAWS. aLTHOUGH A SEMI GOOD BOOK I RECOMMEND CUSTOMERS IN THE UK TRY AND FIND A BOOK FROM THE UK.

I have used this book extensively to help me care for several species of tortoises, Leopards, Sulcatas, Redfoot and Yellowfoots. The content is highly accurate and every tortoise keeper should use this book as his "bible" of care specs.

3.0 out of 5 stars unfortunately lacking in info. 18 April 2000
By Craig Urekar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This had the potential to be a wonderful book, but it is lacking in the information that you would expect to get in the books of this series. The diseases and disorders section is esentially non-existant and the specific care of the different species is far too generalized and totally lacks detail. It is a very good book for beginners or those looking for overviews of the major species and their care, but that is about it. Still waiting for the Tortoise Manual - which is long overdue.
