I purchased this book prior to buying a Leopard Gecko, as I wanted to be prepared. I then bought all of the necessary homing facilities for the leopard gecko and set it up a few days before I bought the gecko. After speaking in great detail with the pet centre reptile specialists and a local exotic animal vet, I noted that many parts of the advice given in this book were incorrect.
I felt that it could actually have caused problems for my gecko and I am very grateful that I investigated further rather than just relying on this book.
The problem with reptiles is that different things work differently for each owner/pet but I felt that many points in this book were really off the mark. I have had my leopard gecko 15 months and also have an African Fat-Tailed Gecko and still find new things to worry about every now and again but I would never consult this book regarding anything.
I usually sell books that I have finished with and are in good condition, but I refuse to sell this on as I feel I may be responsible for assisting in potentially hurting these lovely, exciting and beautiful lizards.
