but mixed in quality. This book is possibly very helpful if you're new to lizards and are looking for an overview on some species, just to see what's interesting. However, although the bulk of the care is accurate, there are parts I disagree with; as another reviewer noted, they state you can put four leopard geckos in a ten gallon tank, which is unreal; I'd say maybe 2 in a ten gallon. Lots of the cage sizes they mention seem off, one way or the other, but the novice, at whom this book is aimed, won't know that, because they lack experince.
As far as general care goes, I think they got most of the diets right, as well as general temperatures, etc. but there is no real in depth guide to care; breeding info, or really good specific information is scarce. Also, it seems some of thier species are out of date, by which I mean, many formerly common but now harder to come by species (which again, the novice likely won't find) are covered, whereas many now common species aren't. I can't really reccomend this book; look at online dealers (easy to find) and pet stores to figure what lizards appeal to you, and just go ahead and do more specific research; there are books on most particular species common to the trade, as well as mailing list, etc. where you can get equally good or better info, of a greater depth.
